Downloading VLC 64-bit for Windows

Setting up VLC


  • Only 3.0.x 64-bit versions are supported

Installation - Windows

  • Install VLC support package via SVP -> Utilities -> Additional programs and features
  • Choose Utilities -> SVP in VLC from SVP's main menu.
  • Press "Allow" in UAC window (if asked) or make VLC\plugins\video_filter folder writable manually:

How to manually set folder permissions

  • Open VLC via Run VLC with SVP... from SVP's main menu.

Additional steps required in case you don't want to run VLC from SVP's menu:

  • Run Utilities -> Set environment variables OR adjust a few system settings manually to allow VLC find the Vapoursynth installation:
    • add SVP 4\mpv64 folder to the PATH environment variable
    • add new env variable called PYTHONPATH, containing the same SVP 4\mpv64 path

How to manually set environment variables

  • Run VLC, open Tools -> Preferences, click Show settings -> All, navigate to Interface -> Control interfaces and turn on SVP control interface.

Installation - macOS

Installation - Linux

  • Locate the plugins path, for example: /usr/lib/vlc/plugins, write it to the main.setup.vlc.plugins property in SVP's All settings;
  • Make this path user-writable;
  • Run SVP -> Utilities -> SVP in VLC

Using SVP in VLC

  • Run SVP -> Utilities -> SVP in VLC to install SVP's plugins for VLC.
  • Ensure that SVP's control interface is turned on under Tools -> Preferences, Show settings -> All, Interface -> Control interfaces.
  • That's it!


  • If you see VLC: unsupported input video format message in SVP's log - try to turn off Hardware acceleration in VLC -> Preferences -> Inputs/Codecs
  • Ensure that the video filter is correctly installed in VLC:
    • Open VLC, navigate to Tools -> Preferences, click on Show settings - All, scroll down to the Video -> Filters and ensure that "Vapoursynth" filter is listed here. If it isn't then something is wrong with the Vapoursynth installation.
    • Examine both VLC and SVP log.
  • In some rare cases the PYTHONPATH environment variable is not enough for some reason and you'll get VapourSynth engine error - possibly corrupted installation error in the VLC's messages log. This can be fixed by copying all the files from SVP 4/mpv64 into VLC's folder.

Limitations and known problems

  • Frame rate conversion is limited to x3
  • If you see VLC: unsupported input video format message in SVP's log - try to turn off Hardware acceleration in VLC -> Preferences -> Inputs/Codecs.
    • VLC 3.0 specific: "Hardware acceleartion" may be missing from "Input/Codecs" section, in this case open all settings by pressing Show All button, in Input/Codecs -> Video codecs set Preferred decoders list to FFmpeg
  • The filter can't increase frame size on-the-fly, so all SVP's options that increase source frame size won't work, for example:
    • Any frame size adjustments except for "Resize to screen" - YES
    • "Resize to screen" is the screen size is larger than the video size - NO
    • 4:3 video on 16:9 screen with "outer lighting" enabled - NO
    • 16:9 BD with black bars cutted off - YES
    • 16:9 BD with black bars cutted off and "outer lighting" enabled - YES
