Sponsor Ad Position, Android and iOS SDK Ad Break Type.
Sponsor Ad Position
Previously, sponsor ads were always shown closest to the video content: after pre-rolls, after mid-rolls, and before post-rolls. Now, you have the option to show all ads from a sponsor goal either only before or only after the relevant linear ad by setting the Ad position at creation time.
If you want to show sponsor ads before and after a normal linear ad, which may be desirable for mid-roll ad breaks, then you must set up two separate sponsor goals: one selecting the before ad position, and one selecting the after ad position. This counts as one linear ad break.
In order to show both sponsor ads in this scenario, you need to have at least two sponsor ad positions available per linear ad break. Contact your Account Manager to adjust the number of sponsor ads per linear ad break (if needed).
Android and iOS SDK Ad Break Type
From version 18.104.22.168.0, the Android and iOS SDKs contain methods to retrieve the type of linear ad break that is currently playing. This provides you information on whether a pre-roll, mid-roll, or post-roll ad break is being shown.
This release includes the following documentation updates:
