Vidangossy began his career in the youth squad of Club Deportivo Universidad Católica, but finished his football grooming at Unión Española. He made his first division debuts in 2005 and became a constant in the starting lineup.
Chile went on to qualify for the 2007 FIFA U-20 World Cup that took place in Canada. In the quarterfinals against Nigeria, Vidangossy scored the last goal in a 4-0 extra time. Before scoring in the 122nd minute, he had fallen to the floor with cramps; Chile eventually finished third, the national side's best ever performance in the category.
After those performances, Vidangossy was signed to a five-year contract with Villarreal CF in Spain, joining compatriots Manuel Pellegrini (coach) and Matías Fernández. However, he would never play any official games for the club, as all of the team's foreign player spots were used up. He was quickly loaned out to fellow La Liga side UD Almeria, but met the same fate.
Vidangossy was subsequently loaned to Chilean club Audax Italiano, which played in the 2008 Libertadores Cup. Afterwards, he stayed in the country, loaned again, now to Corporación Deportiva Everton de Viña del Mar.
