Video Inventory

A Video Placement is a rotation pool of video ads.

Video Placement

There are four ways to display this type of ad units:

  • Pre-Roll Ad - a video ad shown before the video content.
  • Mid-Roll Ad - a video ad appearing as a break during the video content.
  • Post-Roll Ad - a video ad shown after the video content has ended.
  • Overlay Ad - a graphical ad covering the bottom third part of the video player window.
  • To add a Video Placement:

    1. Log into your network account and go to the Publishers tab.
    2. Select an existing Site > Zone or add new ones.
    3. Click the Add Video Placement button and fill out the form that appears:
    4. Video Placement Pre-Settings:

      • Vast 3.0 Config - settings for the Skip Ad button behaviour:
      • Show Skip Ad Button. Select this checkbox to allow skipping ads.
      • Show After (seconds) Defines when the Skip Ad button will be displayed.
    5. Click Save. You will be forwarded to the Video Placement card where you can specify additional settings and get the VAST 2.0/3.0/4.0 tags, which should then be inserted to your player.

    You can select the ad serving domain from the Domain drop-down list that will be used for your VAST tags if you have more than one available domain.

    HTML Samples panel allows to test the performance of the generated VAST tag via the player sample:

    In addition to the regular settings available for all placement types, Video Placements include Vast Progress Events and 3d Party Vast Tracking settings.
