Serve mid-roll ads without content ingestion

You can serve mid-roll ads without content ingestion by manually including video duration and cue points in your ad tag, using the following parameters:

Parameter Details
vid_d

(Video duration)

This parameter accepts a variable value which specifies the duration of the content, in seconds. 

The vid_d and allcues parameters are used to serve mid-roll ads without content ingestion. Ad rules are also required to return mid-rolls.

Usage example

Video content duration of 90000 seconds (25 hours):
vid_d=90000

allcues

(All cue points)

This parameter accepts variable values which are a comma-separated list of cue points, in milliseconds. For each value, Ad Manager returns an ad break.

The vid_d and allcues parameters are used to serve mid-roll ads without content ingestion. Ad rules are also required to return mid-rolls.

If time-based cues are used in your ad rules (for example, "Every N seconds" or "At fixed times"), then those set in the ad rule are used, and the cues passed into allcues are ignored. Mid-rolls still require duration, so vid_d must still be passed.

Usage example

Cue points at 10 and 20 seconds:
allcues=10000,20000
