    Linpus is based on the now ancient Fedora 8. If you install mplayer or VLC from the rpmfusion repos, they should be able to play mp3s and most movie formats.

    Installing VLC on Aspire One Linux

    I would personally install something better than Linpus on the machine, which pretty much is anything else at all.
