Born in Šekovići, Socialist Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, Vidaković started his career at FK Sarajevo, and played in the last edition of the Yugoslav First League, appearing in 13 games as the Bosnian team finished in ninth position. Subsequently, he signed for national giants Red Star Belgrade, and competed in the inaugural season of the Serbian-Montenegrin tournament, scoring a career-best 12 goals in his second year but eventually leaving the capital side without any silverware won.
In 1994, Vidaković joined Real Betis from Spain, which had just returned from the second division. In his first year in La Liga he appeared in 30 matches and netted twice as the Andalusians overachieved for a final third place, and rarely missed a game in his first three seasons combined.
Also at Betis, Vidaković suffered a serious injury from which he never fully recovered, leaving the club in 2000 after its top flight relegation. He joined another team in the country, CA Osasuna, which had moved in the opposite direction, then saw out his career at 33 after playing one year with modest Polideportivo Ejido.
In the 2008–09 season, Vidaković worked with second level side Real Murcia, as assistant to Javier Clemente. In the following years he returned to familiar Andalusia and started his head coach career, with third-tier teams Écija Balompié, Cádiz CF and Real Betis B.
Vidaković played once for Yugoslavia, appearing in a 1–3 friendly loss with Brazil on 30 October 1991. He then contributed with five matches as FR Yugoslavia qualified for the first time ever to an international tournament, the 1998 FIFA World Cup in France, but was eventually omitted from the final squad.
