This package requires lame, which is not in official Fedora repositories for legal reasons:
   https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Multimedia/MP3
As a result, your package is not eligible for Fedora.
Maybe your package should take place in some third-party repository:

Hi Mohamed

Really I don't ever use mp3 file. So I can disable lame support.

Since aqualung is a monolithic application (there's no modules or such for media support), it maybe very very difficult for third-party repositories to provide the missing bits to extend Aqualung support to nonfree formats.
I *strongly* advice you to submit aqualung to some third-party repository. Users will thank you :).

You can have a look at this review for VLC, given up for similar reasons:

Thank you for your explanation.
Are you saying me that aqualung without non-free codecs support could be useless ? 
:)
I wish create a rpm with a software free of nonfree-codecs and of everything else I'm not interested ... :)

I think of suggest aqualung in RPMFusion. 
See you next time (or next package review). :)

Regards.
