VLC for Android using smarthings

Can anyone help me?
I need to use VLC thing in Github but I need to use App instead of my PC.
PC need to be open 24 hour in order to work. How about using mobile as a source.

Thanks

Do you want to use VLC Thing for notifications and chime sounds? If so, then it might be easier to use LANnouncer apk on an Android device running OS 5.1 or better. Use it with a smart app called BigTalker or CoRE.

I want to install VLC for Andorid in my Amazon HD8 tablet and use it as VLC Thing. I have echo speak but it can’t play mp3 files. Is that possible ? Can I configure my HD8 tablet to support VLC thing ?
