VLC media player is a portable, free and open-source, cross-platform media player and streaming media server written by the VideoLAN project.
Do you normally encounter problems when you try to play some music files on your android device? What about when you try to play WhatsApp voice notes? Well I have a solution for you. I would like to recommend an app called VLC Media Player.
The VLC Player is the best software or app for listening to music, watching videos and movies. VLC Media Player was commonly used on computers and laptops to watch movies as it has great features. It supports Microsoft windows, Ubuntu, Linux, Mac OS and Android operating systems.

The VideoLan company has introduced this great application to android smartphones.The app has pretty much all the features you need to play your music! and without a doubt it surpasses the built in app ‘Play Music’. How? Well the built in app does not support or play some music formats like .WMA and VLC player does.
The app supports almost all audio and video formats. This includes file formats like WMA, MP4, MP3, 3GP, AVI and the list goes on. The (minimum) required android version for this app is Android 2.3.
VLC Player Features
- All video and audio files are supported
- It supports subtitles, teletext and captions
- You can create playlists
- You can enable equalizers
- It has different folders (Artists, Albums, Songs, Genres, Playlists)
- Search option – You can search your favorite tracks
- Refresh button and Last playlist button
How to Play WhatsApp Voice Notes Using VLC Player
If you have been searching for an app that can play the WhatsApp voice notes format (.opus) then this is it. To listen to the voice using the app you must first locate then copy the voice note.
To locate the voice note go to File manager –> SD Card/Phone memory –> Scroll down to the WhatsApp folder and open it –> Go to media –> WhatsApp Voice Notes –> Choose the folder containing the voice note you want –> Click on the voice note to copy it –> After copying it, paste the voice on your music folder or download folder.
Once done, Open the VLC App and search for the voice note. If you need further assistance, do contact me.
How To Create Playlists – VLC Player
Creating a playlist can be quite tricky but I’ve got you and its pretty simple. To create a playlist for the first time do the following: Click on the three bars next to the song you want to add to a playlist. Select Add to playlist then write the playlist name and click OK.
To add more songs to the same playlist click the three bars next to the song > Add to playlist > Select the playlist then done. I think the VideoLan company should put into consideration an option for adding multiple songs to a playlist.
