Pre-roll ads are video advertisements that play prior to original content video.
There are two ways to add pre roll ads to your site with Viralize:

  • Use our VAST code, if you already have a player
  • Choose a Content Unit with thematic videos combined with pre-roll spots

Use our VAST code

For this solution, you must already have a player on your site.

Choose the VAST Viralize Unit or create a new Unit with the VAST format.
By clicking on "Get code" the window opens where you can configure and copy the VAST code for your page. Proceed as follows:

If the Site on which you want to insert VAST has already been approved in the Sites section
Select the Site from the drop-down menu above the code area, which will be updated with the site URL.

If the Site on which you want to insert VAST is not present in the Sites section
Don't select anything from the drop-down menu and copy the code as is.

Make sure you have the escaped page URL on which you want to insert VAST (see more details here) and copy it.

Replace the {ESCAPED_PAGE_URL} with the copied URL.

Add the site domain containing the page(s) on which you want to use VAST in the Sites section so that our Staff can view it and approve it quickly.

Choose a Content Unit

We have created Content Units to offer all Publishers an opportunity to monetize with pre-rolls.

The Content Unit provides a player that delivers pre-roll advertising videos combined with thematic content videos selected from the thousands present in our library. The selection is based on the user's interests, the topics covered on the page, or on specific categories of your choice.

Go to Units.
You can use a pre-generated Content Unit in English; to choose different settings, create a new Unit.

To start, we suggest choosing the Stream Unit with:

  • Activation On ad fill
  • Show as ViP Only while playing content or ad

Select the language for content videos.

At this time, don't change anything else and test the format.
When you have some data in Reports, you can better understand how to optimize delivery.
