In order to install proprietary codes one needs to use third party repository such as After fresh install of Fedora the chances are high that you do not have MP3 support to play your music files. Here is a short howto to help you enable MP3 Layer1 codec support on Fedora Linux. First enable repository:

# yum localinstall --nogpgcheck$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm

What remains to be done next is to install codes:

# yum install gstreamer1-plugins-ugly gstreamer1-plugins-bad-freeworld

All done. Now you should be able to play MP3 files. Enjoy…!
