Christian Schaller has indicated that MP3 playback and decoding support will likely be available in the upcoming release of Fedora 25. While the Fedora distribution will not ship with MP3 support installed by default, Schaller has written that MP3 codecs should be available in the official Fedora repositories. "In Fedora Workstation 25 I am happy to tell you all that we are taking another step in improving our codec support by adding support for MP3 playback. I know this has been a big wishlist item for a long time for a lot of people so I am really happy that we are finally in a position to fulfill that wish. You should be able to download the MP3 plugin on day one through GNOME Software or through the missing codec installer in various GStreamer applications. For Fedora Workstation 26 I would not be surprised if we decide to ship it on the install media."
