I want to play mp3 songs on Fedora 18

The following method gets the job done with least corruption:
Visit Fluendo plugin website and download MP3 plugin for free (click on "check out", no credit card needed).

Extract the file "" into ~/.gstreamer-0.10/plugins folder.

Execute the following command:

gst-launch-0.10 filesrc location=music.mp3 ! decodebin2 ! audioconvert ! flacenc ! filesink location=music.flac

This will create a file called music.flac for the input file music.mp3.

Now you can play the file music.flac using any existing audio/video software on Fedora.

Remark 1: The instructions above provide bare minimum support (only mp3). VLC media player on the other hand supports most of the common audio and video formats. Read more about using VLC media player on Fedora 18 without installing it.:
