You can install the rhythmbox coverflow plugin downloading the tar.gz from the below link -

rhythmbox coverflow

Then install pygtkglext

# yum install pygtkglext

Then you have to extract the tar.gz file and keep the extracted folder in ~/.gnome2/rhythmbox/plugins/ (Create the folder if it doesn't exist) and then open Rhythmbox and check the new plugin from Edit-->Plugins and you are ready to go.

The catch is for the present Rhythmbox version shipped with Fedora 16 there is a bug that you cannot install any third party plugins doing anything. People have tried copying it to ~/.local/share/rhythmbox/plugins , /usr/share/rhythmbox/plugins , /usr/lib/rhythmbox/plugins/ but nothing have worked.

You can check the below bugzilla link
