    Unity now has its own mobile-friendly video handler called VideoPlayer. You will need to convert any videos you have into mp4s that play natively on mobile, but otherwise it's fairly straightforward to set up.

    Use Unity's built-in VideoPlayer class instead, which was introduced in Unity 5.6 and doesn't have any of the same issues that the old MovieTexture had. This plugin has been obsolete for about a year and a half now, and hasn't received updates in almost 3 years. It's dead, Jim.

    Thanks, all of my video (and theres a lot) is in OGG format which isn't supported on IOS which is why i wanted to see if i could get the plugin working again. The app was built about 3 years ago while the plugin was still being updated.

    If that's the case, by my understanding, your app is (and always has been) absolutely shredding your users' battery life, since your content isn't supported by the efficient hardware video decoders. VideoPlayer hooks in directly to that hardware video decoding system. Even if it still worked, I'd still have to recommend re-encoding your video.
