You can go to Applications --> Add/Remove ... and type mp3 in Search field. You'll get a list of applications related to the search term. Second item should be GStreamer extra plugins. Install them and you can play mp3 audio files.

Or you can try another option from here http://ubuntuguide.org/wiki/Ubuntu:Jaunty#Restricted_Extras

Good luck.

Can you help with this problem?
