Brightcove Player v5.x HTML5 plugin

How to integrate Pulse ad delivery with the Brightcove Player version 5.x using the VideoJS HTML5 plugin.

Note: A new VideoJS v7.x and Brightcove Player v6.x HTML5 plugin is available. We recommend that you migrate over to the new plugin as soon as possible.


The Brightcove Player HTML5 plugin is the easiest and preffered way to integrate your Brightcove Player with Pulse for ad serving, because the plugin automatically takes care of:
  • ad selection,
  • ad playback,
  • ad tracking and error handling,
  • and handling VPAID 1.0 and VPAID 2.0 ads.

Currently, the plugin is limited to displaying linear ads (pre-, mid-, and post-rolls) and pause ads.

Plugin location and tutorial

To integrate, you must have a Brightcove Player version 5.x up and running on your site, as well as a Pulse account and a unique ID (pulseHost).

Request access to the sample integration through your Technical Account Manager.
