VAST Nonlinear Ads


NonLinear ads are the overlay ads that display as an image (StaticResource) or rich media (HTMLResource or IFrameResource) on top of video content during playback.


The plugin by accepts one nonlinear object per <AD> element. A nonlinear banner is showing over video content (but not over a linear video ad), centered horizontally, right above the control bar. If the nonlinear banner size exceeds the player size, it will be hidden. If one more nonlinear element is defined for another <Ad>, it will replace the antecedent nonlinear object.

If nonlinear content is a static image banner, the plugin automatically generates an ad close button. If the minSuggestedDuration nonlinear VAST parameter is defined, the close button will remain hidden for the parameter's time value. It is possible to set up a recall button for a nonlinear static resource (image). You just need to enable the nonlinearRecall configuration option.
The Close button, and Recall button, VAST clickthrough are ignored for HTML and FRAME nonlinear resources. Buttons and actions can be rendered through HTML.

The example video above uses the VMAP protocol, consisting of two VAST tags. The first VAST is responsible for playing pre-roll video and showing a nonlinear static PNG banner that a user can close after 5 seconds. The second VAST shows another nonlinear HTML banner (at 00:25).
