Is there any way of uploading an avatar that can play a video?

    Ok, so I'm making an avatar, and I wanted a video to play above its head when I gesture. I had everything working with Video Player components until I found out they weren't allowed on avatars (I only need the video, no audio btw). I imagine there's an easier way than manually creating sprite sheets of every frame in the video and playing it that way.

    Thanks for reading,

    EDIT: I managed to do exactly what I wanted more or less by converting the video to a gif, then the gif to a sprite sheet, then using that in a particle system in unity.

    yes there is, but that would mean you need to convert the video into a .gif clip them convert the .gif into a sprite sheet and them use the particle system in unity to play the sprite sheet.
