Playing flash videos with VAST plugin

Sep 15, 2011 at 5:38 PM

Hi,

I've just watched How To video about Adding support for MAST, VAST, & VPAID based advertising. This excercise is based on Microsoft Example xml from this site http://www.iab.net/iab_products_and_industry_services/508676/digitalvideo/vast/vast_xml_samples. After this i tried using other links from there, but only that one works. I realized that it's because it has wmv content and other doesn't. Is there any chance to play videos in other formats than wmv? Documentation says that it is, but i am not able to make it after watching tutorial.

You can play mp4 too the same way as wmv.

You can play Smooth Streaming adverts but the you have to set delivery="adaptive" and mimeType="text/xml" in VAST file.

Thank you for reply but in case you haven't noticed this post was written 1 year ago when we were using version 2.5. As far as i can see it was fixed in next release.
