I think gstreamer1.0-fluendo-mp3 is now redundant and could be dropped.

In gstreamer 1.12, mp3 decoding is done by the mpg123 plugin 
( in gst-plugins-ugly.

It is in gstreamer1.0-plugins-ugly, which depends on libmpg123-0, and 
pulled in by ubuntu-restricted-addons.

I don't know whether Fluendo (the company) still maintains 
gstreamer1.0-fluendo-mp3 or not. On the other hand, I can see that 
mpg123 is actively maintained.
