Yes, but the fix for that bug (crash) does not fix this bug (codec).
This bug is not fixed in gnome-software-3.22.3-1.fc25.
The workarounds for this bug are as follows.
(1) Install the plugin manually,
# dnf install gstreamer1-plugin-mpg123
or (2) use the repos from rpmfusion as usual, and gnome-software will find and install those plugins:
Thanks, should be fixed upstream with:
