Outstream video ads

Outstream video ads

HTML5 Flash

An outstream video ad is a video ad without actual video content following it. Only the ad is displayed to the viewer.

When interacted with (or autoplay where available) the player will load a video ad and display it. You can set a start and end poster frame. When the video ad is over the poster (or end of video poster) will be shown.

The video ad type must be a linear video ad (VAST or VPAID compliant ad tags). Other video ad formats are not supported. Outstream video ads are available for HTML5 and Flash video with Radiant Media Player.

Specifies that the player should enter an outstream mode where no content will be displayed. Default: false.

Not all ad servers authorise outstream video ads. It is up to you to make sure your use case complies with your ad server or provider terms of service.

Ad scheduling is not supported with this mode. You can only display one video ad.
