Redhat and fedora do not support mp3's out of the box. You'll need to add that support. Have a look here.

You can also download Xine,. It will allow you to play mp3s, Oggs, and watch mpegs, avi, etc
here is the link

Really? That's news to me! Redhat and Fedora don't support Mp3s? I use a FC 1 distro and I have mplayer installed and I had no problems playing MP3s.

I think what snakeo2 means is that there is no default package that comes with Redhat and Fedora that will play mp3 files. You have to manually download and install one yourself such as mplayer

Multimedia

One of the criticisms of recent Red Hat releases by home users has been the lack of default multimedia support. Unfortunately, Fedora is no different. And due to licensing issues, Xmms is crippled with an MP3 placeholder plugin, so it can't play MP3 audio files. Fedora also was not able to include media players such as Mplayer or Xine. On a more positive note, a new package called Sound-Juicer has been included for extracting music from CDs. RhythmBox also is offered for managing and playing your media library and connecting to Internet radio stations; it's a program similar to Apple's iTunes. RhythmBox has the same limitation as Xmms, however, in that it does not include the MP3 plugin.
