VLC for Unity

All the LibVLC features in your Unity projects

VLC for Unity

Our VLC for Unity plugin allows you to use a LibVLC-powered video player in your games and Unity apps. Whether you need to support a strange format, live streaming or play a 4K video in your latest production, we got you covered.


Given that this plugin is using LibVLCSharp (which uses LibVLC), it exposes more or less the same feature set and same codecs support than VLC, such as:

Most things you can achieve with the regular VLC desktop app, you can also achieve using LibVLCSharp.

Understanding our asset offering for Unity

Platform specific assets

Free vs paid versions

If you use a paid version of the asset on a non-purchased platform, it will display a watermark. When evaluating which asset to purchase, you should think about the platform you want to target, not the platform you are using to develop the app.

Example: Buy the Windows asset, and use on Android - watermark appears on Android. To avoid watermarks on multiple platforms, purchase the asset for each target platform you intend to build your apps and games for.

Purchase VLC for Unity

The price of the asset is $100 per target platform (VAT inclusive).

VLC for Unity - Windows Desktop Classic

VLC for Unity - UWP (Win10+, Xbox and HoloLens)

VLC for Unity - Android

VLC for Unity - iOS

VLC for Unity - macOS

Coming later

We are always working on adding more platform support, feel free to reach out if you would like chat or express interests.


What is included with my purchase?

Upon completing your purchase, you will receive secure download instructions by email from Paddle.

Here is what is included with your purchase:

Why is this asset no longer listed on the official Unity Asset Store?

The Unity Asset Store deprecated our assets for licensing reasons. We are currently working with Unity on getting the asset back on their store soon. The asset listed here is the same project and team than the one previously listed on the Unity Store.

We previously bought VLC for Unity on the Unity Store, how can we get access to the latest builds?

We distribute the VLC for Unity assets through our own Store now, here on videolabs.io.

If you purchased the asset previously on the Unity Store, you can email us with your Unity invoice at unity@videolabs.io, and we will provide you with access to the latest builds for the platform you already purchased.

I need help with an issue in Unity using the VLC for Unity asset, how can I get assistance?

The first best step is to create an issue on our gitlab issue tracker, using an issue template to help us reproduce. This will start the conversation on the issue and help assess its nature and complexity.

Do you provide refunds?
