Advertising in WP7?

Jul 21, 2011 at 9:39 AM

Hi there!

I'd like to ask, is it planned to add advertising functionality in wp7-version? (and if 'yes' && future plans not under NDA - when it could be implement?)

Thanks,

Best Regards,

Hi Konstantin, great question. Currently, WP7 only allows 1 MediaElement at a time and video ads require 2 MediaElements in order to keep the current video loaded and buffered so it can resume playback quickly after the ad plays. If and when WP7 supports multiple MediaElements, supporting video on video ads should be possible.

I just created a suggestion on the wp7 uservoice forum. Please vote for it if you'd like to see this feature. http://wpdev.uservoice.com/forums/110705-app-platform/suggestions/2060207-support-multiple-media-elements
