Basic video build guide

Add the Video Player component

You can add a video to any DoubleClick Rich Media creative. The best way to add one is by using the Video Player component.

If you're unfamiliar with building DoubleClick Rich Media creatives, see our Creative build guides.

How do I add the Video Player component to my creative?

  1. Drag the Video Player component  onto the stage of your Flash file.
  2. Resize and move the component so it fills the area you want your video to play in.
    • You can resize and move it using the Free Transform tool (shortcut: Q) or by editing the Flash properties panel.
    • Keep in mind that the video file stretches or contracts to fill the aspect ratio of your Video Player component, so size the player with your aspect ratio in mind.

Studio reminder

Since this is a DoubleClick creative, always include the Enabler and at least one DoubleClick exit in your creative.
