No, "vosotros" means "you" plural, as in "y'all" (if you're from the southern US), "you's" (if you're scottish ;-P ) or "ye" (if you're from the 13th century). But you're right that it's only really used in Spain.
"They" is "ellos" or "ellas".

Hello! "vosotros" means "you, plural", not "they". You are correct in saying it is mostly used in Spain. It is used as an informal contrast to "ustedes" which is the polite form of "you, plural".
