Tools & Services

  • Bulk update to enable 'AFV Overlay' may not work for all your videos - OPEN
    • After the bulk update process is completed, your videos may remain disabled for 'AFV Overlay'. To workaround this issue, you will need to first make sure 'In-video Ads' setting for your videos is enabled (you can use the bulk update tool to flip this setting), followed by enabling the 'AFV Overlay' option. You can then return the 'In-video Ads' setting to the original state.
