vvvv is free for evaluation and non-commercial use.
For all commercial applications, you need to buy a license.

Commercial use means that the work done with vvvv is primarily intended for or directed toward commercial advantage or private monetary compensation.

We are well aware of the fact that the distinction between commercial and non-commercial has a somehow blurry boundary. We trust the fair judgement of our users.

Three types of commercial licenses


  • 500€ +VAT per license
  • volume discounts apply
  • use on one PC at a time
  • valid forever
  • includes updates for one year since purchase

Buy Full License


Full licenses include free updates for one year since the date of purchase. Buy another year of updates for half the price of a full license. Volume discounts apply.

Buy Update


  • 200€ +VAT per license
  • volume discounts apply
  • use on one PC at a time
  • valid for 7 consecutive days
  • includes updates within those seven days

Buy Weekly License


If you are creating a product based on vvvv which does not confront the end-user with vvvv itself and you'll be selling it in large (> 50) quantities you can apply for an OEM license. Details are negotiable based on the nature of your product. Please direct your informal application to licensing@vvvv.org

Volume Discounts

Discounts for licenses bought in bulk

  • 22% off for the 4th to 9th License
  • 33% off for the 10th to 19th License
  • 44% off for the 20th to 99th License
  • 55% off for the 100th and more Licenses

Copy Protection

Protektor provides dongle based copy protection for your vvvv projects. A dongle can be bought in addition to each active (less then a year old) full license for 125€ or 11.000€. Volume discounts apply as follows:

  • 1-3: 125€/11.000€ + VAT
  • 22% off for the 4th to 9th dongle
  • 33% off for the 10th to 19th dongle
  • 44% off for the 20th to 99th dongle
  • 55% off for the 100th and more dongles

Discounts are applied per customer, ie. dongles don't need to be bought in bulk. Order via licensing@vvvv.org.

Rent a Dongle

If you need dongles only for a shorter period (eg. the week of a fair) consider renting them. Tell us your specific needs via licensing@vvvv.org and we'll send you a quote.
