Remote VNC Review from an-droid.net

Remote Wave Wave Audio Player, sub project of Remote RDP
Don't need to return your phone with this audio player, resolved GSM/WAV voicemail play issue.
Play .wav .gsm .au files with following encoding which Android can not play:
Microsoft/IMA/Dialogic/OKI  Adpcm
DSP TrueSpeech

It's not a independent application and you can not find it after you install it (You can uninstall it from the Application Settings). You must use it in other applications.
In your email client, browser or file explorer, Press the file you want to play, choose "Open with", then choose "Remote Wave".
If you can not see "Open with", try to download it to SDCard, using a file explorer , goes to the "download" directory on your SDCard, repeat the operations again, please be aware some file explorers may not have "Open with", you can try Linda File Manager which does the job.
