Test DAI streams from an iOS device

You can view and verify DAI compliance with the IMA SDK for your VAST ad tags, live streams, and video on demand streams with the Mobile VSI app from the iOS app store. To get started, download the app and install it on your device.

  1. Within the app, select your stream type and the stream details into the text fields.

    See input details for mobile VSI.

  2. Click Start to play the stream. You can play either a live stream or video on demand.

(Optional) Enter your stream details in a web application


To make it easier to input the stream information, you can also enter your stream details in a web application, generate a QR code, and then scan the code with the Mobile VSI app.

The stream plays automatically and displays logged details. These can be sent directly to your email.
