Recently, one of my friends got some audio files with the .vgz extension but couldn’t open them anyway. Fortunately, I find the good solutions to solve the problem after much searching and trying. Just use a good VGZ player or VGZ to MP3 converter. And in this article I will share the good ways for playing VGZ audio files with you. 

Need a video & audio converter to convert between various common formats in daily life? Try WonderFox HD Video Converter Factory Pro: 

Q: I tried to play an audio file which has the extension ".vgz", but it does not seem to work. I've tested the file with a plug-in for another program and it works. Is there a clean way to convert a VGZ to MP3? I tried the WinAmp with LAME method but all I get is end of an MP3 without sound. Any assistance in this matter would be greatly appreciated.

A: VGZ is an audio file format used by many video game platforms. The standard extension for the files is .vgm (Video Game Music), and it can be compressed into .vgz extension with Gzip. VGZ is less popular and rarely compatible with most media players and devices. I have spent much time gathering and summarizing the workarounds for playing VGZ files. In this article, I will introduce two great VGZ players and shows you how to convert VGZ to MP3.
