What Are Others Saying About AVPro Video

So reading through the reviews it’s clear to see that AVPro Video is a Unity plugin with a lot to offer. Say this for two reasons. One, there are a number of people who are praising the utility and robustness of the plugin. Two, in the few instances where people post a review where they are asking for help or saying something isn’t working, there is a developer response providing either additional information or a push in the right direction.

The documentation is well laid out on the developer’s website and provides you with a quick start tutorial to get you into the thick of it right away. Once you need more than the basics, wandering around the documentation will illuminate any problems you should encounter. If you encounter one where it’s still a nagging issue, head on over to the developer’s Github repo for reporting bugs. 

It seems to me that the developer is standing behind this product, and even at the higher price point it seems like it could be well worth your while to not have to struggle with other solutions. What do you think? Leave your comments below!
