I just got Fedora and I used to use Windows 7. I transferred my music from a flash drive, and Rhythmbox can't play them I guess. How can I fix this? Is there an alternate program that's as good, if not better?

I am using the newest Fedora.

I would like to clarify why we need all this stuff and why we have to install both gstreamer and gstreamer1, and how this change begin:

  1. GNOME Goal: Port your application to GStreamer 1.0
  2. to install plug-ins in FEDORA 17 -> #625.
  3. in FEDORA 18 the things change a little, GNOME 3.6 uses gstreamer1 instead of gstreamer, some plugins use the same name other changed and other simple disappeared.
  4. to install plug-ins in FEDORA 18 -> #3359.
  5. seemingly in rythmbox has a bug that force to use the old plug-ins instead of the new one
  6. that why some program like TOTEM and GNOME-MPLAYER and MPLAYER use this features and other like CLEMENTINE no -> #3769.

NOTE : in conclusion check is your application was ported or not and install the respective gstreamer or check if you have to need both.

As of Fedora 25, mp3 playback support is included in Fedora. This should now Just Work™.

MP3 really does not work in Fedora 25. It was so easy to install gstreamer in previous versions, just open mp3 and now MP3 support is included and nothing works!!!

Reactivated a bunch of accounts to log in with a fedoraproject.org id just to upvote this and I can't even do that. So let me echo thor: MP3 does not really Just Work in F25. Source? A fresh install I'm using right now to google answers for how to get my mp3s playing again. Docky's gone (the "replacement" Plank doesn't launch), vim conflicted with packages, and I have to find plugins to play media (the auto-finder is stuck with a blank screen and spinning snake). Haven't tried WiFi or changing resolutions yet. Did y'all miss the good ol' days? 'Cuz I can play some Sneaker Pimps from an F23
