shortFormVideo adBreaks

Sun Jun 18, 2017 7:34 am

I've specified 5 adbreaks for a shortformVideo that's almost an hour.  The ads do not occur.  Are shortformVideos exempt from adbreaks, or, do I need to specify the content differently?

Here's the adbreak line in json....

           
],
                                                "dateAdded":  "2017-01-22T12:00:00+00:00",
                                                "adBreaks": [ "00:10:00", "00:20:00", "00:30:00", "00:40:00", "00:50:00" ]                                                
                                            },

ShoerFormVideo cannot play mid-roll adbreaks. only pre-roll is playing. I think when the content is "short video", it should be short, not one hour long.

Thanks for the reply.  I can appreciate that, but, why then, does the Content object that's embedded in the shortFormVideo allow adBreaks?  The spec does not specify that mid-roll adBreaks are only for non-shortFormVideo objects.

There is a lot of errors in Docs and samples.
Look at blog post explaining monetization for DP:


Adding mid-roll ads

By default, channels built using Direct Publisher will display pre-roll ads. This should be sufficient for short-form videos. For other media types — such as movies or episodes — a publisher may want to optimize their content by adding mid-roll ads.

Thanks for that.  I agree, the docs and the samples seem to be inconsistent with the overall design of DP.  There certainly are some discrepancies.
