The plugin needs the extra packages 'libid3tag' (from fedora.us) and
'libmad' (from rpm.livna.org).

Don't install packages manually if you don't know how to solve their
dependencies. Use smart package resolvers like Yum or AptRpm

  http://www.fedora.us/wiki/FedoraHOWTO
  http://rpm.livna.org

add package repositories to the configuration and let the tools do the
work:

  yum install gstreamer-plugins-mp3
or:
  apt-get update
  apt-get install gstreamer-plugins-mp3

It's worthwhile.
