Playing MP3 files

I noticed that the Red Hat Linux 9 distribution didn't come with a MP3 player.

Which player is the best for linux?

Download this RPM and install it with "rpm -ihv xmms-mp3-1.2.7-21.p.i386.rpm" then XMMS will play mp3's.
Another good player is Beep-Media-Player

Why mp3's are not suppported in redhat from version 9 till now...check: (where the mp3 plugin is)
