I am interested in your solution.

If the unit uses the Lazarus-included lazvlc.lpk (or any other solution 
included in FPC/Lazarus), I would store it in the examples folder within 
Lazarus main: 

Please either create an issue in Lazarus gitlab and send the code there 
or send me the example as zipped file and I will upload it to examples.
