Video advertising is not enabled for all customers. Please contact your account manager to discuss enabling this feature.

To enable video advertising, you’ll need a VAST tag from your ad server.

Step 1:

Select ‘Settings’ and select ‘General'.

Step 2:

Enter your default VAST tag in the Default VAST field.

Step 3:

Select the ‘Media’ tab and select ‘Films.’

Step 4:

Select the film you want to use for video advertising.

Step 5:

Select the ‘Cue Ad Breaks’ tab. Add the desired video advertising by using the ‘Add a pre-roll’, ‘Add a mid-roll’, or ‘Add a post-roll’ button.

When adding a mid-roll video, you also need to specify the time the video will play. This is in the hh:mm: ss.fff format, where ‘hh’ is hours, ‘mm’ is minutes, ‘ss’ is seconds and ‘fff’ is milliseconds.

Step 6:

Select ‘Save’ to save the ad breaks.
