Fedora 25 Linux Workstation to Ship with MP3 Playback Support Through New Plugin

According to Mr. Schaller, who reminds us that the current stable release of Fedora Workstation, version 24, includes the open-source OpenH264 H.264 implementation for H.264 decoding and encoding, Fedora 25 Workstation is shipping with a new plugin that should allow for playback of MP3 audio files. It appears that MP3 support in Fedora Linux has been a long requested feature, and, after so many years, it will finally be available in the forthcoming Fedora 25 release, which, unfortunately, was delayed earlier today by a week. However, it doesn’t ship by default, so users will need to install the MP3 plugin via GNOME Software.
