You will need to add the RPM Fusion repositories.  It has a ton of packages
that can't get into the Fedora repos due to licensing/proprietary/etc...

Here's the link:  http://rpmfusion.org/Configuration

After you add the repo, I believe the package names are
gstreamer-plugins-ugly and gstreamer-plugins-bad.  yum search mp3 should
also bring these up.

Also feel free to pop into #fedora on freenode.
