The VideoLAN (VLC) Player is an open-source, lightweight media player that plays practically all media types without additional codecs or add-ins. Record audio with VLC using the "Record" feature. The "Record" feature is one of the "Advanced Controls" in VLC and is not visible by default. First, set your VLC Player to show the "Record" controls in the player interface, and then play and record your audio file.
