Here's how to install the correct MP3 plugin:
1. Make sure that you're using my yum configuration from the installing software question.
2. Open a Terminal.
3. Become root: su -
4. Now, install the correct plugin depending on which MP3 player you want to use:
* For Rhythmbox or Totem:
yum install gstreamer-plugins-ugly
* For XMMS:
yum install xmms-mp3
* The popular XMMS media player (also called "Audio Player" in the Gnome menu) is available for FC5 in Fedora Extras. The freshrpms repository has an MP3 plugin for XMMS. To install XMMS along with its MP3 support make sure that the freshrpms repository is configured in yum as described above. Open a terminal.
Hit enter. Type your root password. Hit enter.
yum -y install xmms xmms-mp3
Hit enter. Wait for the installation to complete. Close the terminal. XMMS will be available in "Applications" > "Sound & Video" as "Audio Player". (Note: You may have to click the upper left hand corner of XMMS, select "Options" > "Preferences" and select an alternate sound output plugin in order to get XMMS to work on your system.)
