Due to licensing difficulties, Jolla has not included an mp3 codec in the Nexus 4 version of Sailfish.

Of course that doesn't mean you can't install the required codec by yourself. Here's how:

First, open the terminal and obtain root.

Add xerxes2's repo -

Code:
zypper ar http://enlisy.org/~xerxes2/pkg/sailfish/armv7hl/xerxes2-sailfish-armv7hl.repo
Refresh repositories -

Code:
zypper ref
Install the fluendo mp3 codec -

Code:
zypper in gst-fluendo-mp3-0.10.23-1.armv7hl
You should now be able to play mp3 files on your Nexus 4.
