How to program skip videos after five seconds

We're trying to implement skippable video ads and it's been more effort than it seems like it should be.

The ad networks, ad server, and player are all pointing fingers at each other.

The common response that we've gotten is that the player--we use Ooyala--should be able to do this.

They can't really; under perfect circumstances, they can, but this is ad ops and nothing is perfect.

So, I've tried to have one of my developers hack something together. His first pass was unsuccessful.

Does anyone have recommendations on how we might be able to code something that force skips video ads after five seconds?

Thanks for your help!

Hello,

 

Thanks for your question. Unfortunately, we don't support such solutions in Ooyala player.

Hi there,

 

I'd be glad to help look into this. Can you let me know what Ad Server you are using, and can you also provide a sample ad tag that has been properly configured to allow for skippable ads.

 

Thanks,

Andrew
