Rhythmbox is agnostic to the particular file formats of music you have -
it uses a system library called GStreamer which can decode many
different types of files.

Some Linux distributions, such as Fedora, don't include an MP3 decoder
due to patent or licensing issues. There's nothing Rhythmbox can do
about this - please either contact your Linux distribution or search the
Internet for details.

Depending on your Linux distribution, the Fluendo MP3 plugin may be an
appropriate way to add MP3 support:
