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.
