VAST from mp4 file

Considering the VAST plugin is a paid one, would it be possible to add an option to create simple vast ads using an mp4 file and a link?

I know there is an option to add a file in the Player settings or embed settings, but would like to rotate it among other vast ads, not replace them

You can create an XML file on your server and use it for VAST URL:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<VAST version="3.0" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="https://raw.githubusercontent.com/InteractiveAdvertisingBureau/vast/master/vast3_draft.xsd">
	<Ad>
		<InLine>
			<AdSystem>Custom</AdSystem>
			<AdTitle><![CDATA[Advertising1]]></AdTitle>
			<Creatives>
				<Creative>
					<Linear skipoffset="00:00:05">
						<Duration>00:00:20</Duration>
						<VideoClicks>
							<ClickThrough><![CDATA[http://google.com]]></ClickThrough>
						</VideoClicks>
						<MediaFiles>
							<MediaFile type="video/mp4">
								<![CDATA[/files/vast.mp4]]>
							</MediaFile>
						</MediaFiles>
					</Linear>
				</Creative>
			</Creatives>
		</InLine>
	</Ad>
</VAST>

Replace:

  • http://google.com - with your desired click URL
  • /files/vast.mp4 - with URL to your video file
  • Delete skipoffset="00:00:05" if you don't want this ad to be skippable
  • Like 1
