how do I install the mp3 codec

I've just install Fedora Core 5.
I tried with yum: yum search mp3, but I didn't get a relevant result, so I don't know what package needs to be installed.

Another question:
How about movie codecs, wmv and other similar formats?

Where you can find things like;

For video formats install something like mplayer (check the first link above) and get the mplayer codec rpm packages from;

You want;
mplayer-codecs All-in-one essential codec pack (contains non-native codecs)
mplayer-codecs-extra Extra codec pack (contains additional codecs)
