Offering ad skipping options to your audience is great way to monetise your content while providing a gentle and smart viewing experience. Radiant Media Player supports ad skipping in 2 ways:
Using VAST 3 skippable video ads (e.g. skip information held in the VAST XML response) is the preferred way to support ad skipping with Radiant Media Player. As an alternative we support configurable ad skipping through player settings.
Before enabling ad skipping through player settings make sure your ad-server/advertiser contract allows for custom ad skipping.
Do not use ad skipping through player settings with the Google ads network (AdSense, DFP, AdX ...) - most ads delivered through the Google ads network will either be VAST 3 skippable compliant or are not intended to be skippable.
Do not enable ad skipping through player settings if your inventory contains VAST 3 skippable video ads as this may cause the display of 2 overlapping skip buttons which is not ideal user experience.
When set to true this setting will enable the display of a skip button while a linear video ad is on stage. Default: false.
Sets the time in seconds before the linear ad becomes effectively skippable. In-between the player will show a message and countdown announcing the soon-to-be available skip option. Default: 5.
It is also possible to customise the skip message and waiting for skip message through player labels.
