Try Audacious or XMMS or MPlayer or Amarok or JuK or shoot ...
you can even open a terminal and issue "play 001_128_Export.mp3"
(replace with your filename)

Cool play mp3 in rhel5

RHEL5 doesn't support playing mp3 for few security reasons. If you wan to play mp3,etc, and want to watch movies in RHEL5 Server do the following steps.

Step-1:
Install the rpmforge-release package as described here:
http://dag.wieers.com/rpm/FAQ.php#B

Step-2:
visit:
http://rpm.pbone.net/
Search for and get these:
mplayer-codecs-20061022-1
mplayer-codecs-extra-20061022-1
fribidi-0.10.7-5.1.i386.rpm

Install them after downloading by typing as root: rpm -Uvh mplayer-codecs*.rpm
rpm -Uvh fribidi-0.10.7-5.1.i386.rpm
Step-3:
place these repo files in your /etc/yum.repos.d/ directory;

FC6.repo file:
Code:
[fc6-base]
name=Fedora Core 6 Updates
mirrorlist=http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist?repo=core-6&arch=$basearch
enabled=0
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora-extras
gpgcheck=0

[fc6-updates]
name=Fedora Core 6 Updates
mirrorlist=http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist?repo=updates-released-fc6&arch=$basearch
enabled=0
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora-extras
gpgcheck=0

[fc6-extras]
name=Fedora Core 6 Extras
mirrorlist=http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist?repo=extras-6&arch=$basearch
enabled=0
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora-extras
gpgcheck=0
freshrpms.repo file:
Code:
[freshrpms]
name=Fedora Core 6 - $basearch - Freshrpms
mirrorlist=http://ayo.freshrpms.net/fedora/linux/6/mirrors-freshrpms
enabled=0
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-freshrpms
gpgcheck=1


Step-4:
yum install mplayer mplayerplug-in xmms xmms-mp3

if not do this
Step-5:
Then try as root: yum install mplayer mplayerplug-in --enablerepo=fc6* --enablerepo=freshrpms
