Vieuphoria is a long form music video by The Smashing Pumpkins, originally released on VHS on October 4, 1994 and DVD on November 26, 2002.[1] It was certified gold by the RIAA in late 1996.[2]

The video consists of various Smashing Pumpkins performances, mostly from the Rock Invasion tour, interspersed with comedy bits (including "Meet the Frogs"), interviews, featurettes, and other short videos.[3] The DVD version includes a complete interview with Manny Chevrolet called "The Unbearable Likeness of Manny" that covered the recording of Siamese Dream. It also included the Lost '94 Tapes, which were found by Billy Corgan shortly before the DVD release.

The soundtrack for the film, Earphoria, was released as a promo CD in 1994 and officially in 2002.
