Fedora doesn’t include support for Mp3s by default.  Thankfully, the people over at RPM Fusion have made it easy to get.  To start, you have to add the RPM Fusion repositories.  To do that, follow the directions here.  I recommend that you use the command-line directions on KDE (the standard directions didn’t really work with KPackageKit on my system), but the standard directions should work fine on GNOME.  Once you add them and apply the two updates you have waiting for you (click yes on all of the warning dialogues), add gstreamer-plugins-ugly on GNOME or add xine-lib-extras-freeworld if you use KDE.  This can all be done from either PackageKit or KPackageKit.  Now you have Mp3 support on Fedora!

Note: You may have to close your package manager and reopen it after the updates are applied.
