The mp3 codecs are on a different repository because of licensing issues.

Install these:
rpm -Uvh
rpm -Uvh

then install the gstreamer codecs:
yum -y install gstreamer-plugins-bad gstreamer-plugins-ugly xine-lib-extras-nonfree

Mp3 should now work, if not, install the xine player:
yum install xine xine-lib libdvdcss

Let me know how it goes.
