Red Hat 8.0 does not support mp3, for valid, patent related reasons.

Just check the release notes, or the official statement (can't find
the URL right now) on Red Hat's web site. The right thing to do, as
far as fighting closed formats is concerned, would be to convert all
mp3 files to ogg format and never go back.

If for any reason you can't or don't want to do it, the purely
technical patch (i.e. keeping the mp3 files and hiding the
problem) would be to go to freshrpms.net, and install all the mp3
related RPMs available on that site.
