It looks like VLC could play the whole audio library worldwide. But does it really play everything? Will it access Amazon Music songs easily? Unfortunately, the answer is NO.

Amazon Music, one of the rising streaming music services globally, provides various tiers: Amazon Music HD, Amazon Music Unlimited, Prime Music, and Amazon Music Free. For the songs on Prime Music & Music Unlimited, it offers a bit rate of 256kbps in encoded MP3 format, while Amazon Music HD & Ultra HD is in encoded FLAC format at 3730kbps (24-bit/192kHz) quality.

All these Amazon Music files are encrypted and cannot be exported to any media player, like VLC. So a necessary approach to finish the task is to record & convert Amazon Music to VLC support audio format, such as MP3, WAV, FLAC, etc.
