Unhappy can't play mp3 w/ xmms in redhat 9

I tried installing another copy of xmms but I still can't play my MP3's. A message pops up saying that RedHat has disabled the MP3 playing capability. Is there some way around this?

If you have Redhat 9 or Fedora,

install the rpm package of xmms from the CD of Redhat 7.3

It works for me if you have trouble in getting it I will send you .

same is the case of mplayer i.e. video player
