What do you mean is very slow? Give a look here to report a bug or here the ffmpeg support forum.

Where are you from? fastestmirror detect your ip and searches the best for you hahaha. If doesn't work goback:


sed -ie 's/fastestmirror=true//g'  /etc/dnf/dnf.conf

dnf clean all && dnf -y update

It says: MP3 encoding support is not included in any Fedora package/application/library because of patents in several regions including the United States, any Fedora package, including ffmpeg. Things may change regarding mp3 support though, since mp3 patent seem have expired.
