XMMS doesn't play MP3's...anymore

I know that RH9 doesn't ship with mp3 support, so i downloaded what i needed to, it worked for a week, but now it won't work at all. Very strange. Can i remove XMMS and start over from the RH9 .rpm's?

Can also install MPlayer

Seems to play a very wide range of audio/video media stuff, quicktime video, mp3's, avi's, wav's, bunch of others...
