Advertising (Web Player)

Overview and requirements to monetize content in a web player.

JWP's advertising features help you to monetize your content with video ads while keeping your viewers engaged. JWP supports standard ad types (VAST, VPAID, VMAP), accommodates third-party technologies (Google IMA SDK, FreeWheel SDK), and supports any ad server that returns the previously-mentioned ad types. You can customize your viewers' ad experiences with ad rules, ad breaks, and localized player messaging. And with Player Bidding, you can improve the yield from programmatic providers.


To begin running advertising through your JWP, you need the items in the following table.
