I've got one mp3 file that plays with xmms but not with
audacious. I've got another mp3 file that can not be
played with either.

XMMS

AUDACIOUS

Both your examples show that you could not play the file. Else you
wouldn't get those messages on stdout and not the error dialog about
verifying your soundcard configuration either.

The MPEG2 file could not be played by either xmms or audacious.
The MPEG1 file could not be played by audacious.
How do I get XMMS to play an MPEG 2 file?
How do I get audacious (the better xmms) to play any mp3 file?

Installing audacious-plugins-nonfree-mp3 would be enough for Audacious.

# yum install audacious-plugins-nonfree-mp3
