If you are doing this on a system used in a business environment where
proper licensing is important and live in the USA or place where
software patents are in effect you can go to https://shop.fluendo.com/
and purchase licensed plug-ins for MPEG2, Windows Media, MP3 etc
Gstreamer plug-ins.  The MP3 plug-in from Fluendo is free, the others
cost money.

If you are a home user or live in an area where software patents are not
in effect then you can use RPMForge and install gstreamer-plugins-*
packages and get the capability.
