Problems with adtag format

1 reply [Last post]

Hello

We are implementing an pre-roll ad before movie trailers in our site and we keep on having problems with OVA understanding the adtag we receive from our ad provider.

AFAIK, the adtag should return a XML file, but doing a wget of the URL we get a script. I'm far from mastering this, so I'm unsure about whose at fault. Am I doing something wrong? Maybe OVA & FlowPlayer are not the most suitable tools to interoperate with our provider?

Here's a sample page with firebug support enabled:

www.salir.com / test-video.php

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

From what I can see on your ad tag:

http://ad.doubleclick.net/pfadx/adconion.salir.es/video;sz=1000x1;ord=1289932061

It's not returning a VAST response. It seems you have a Google Instream ad tag - so you probably need to run the Google Instream plugin to serve ads with that tag.

For OVA to work - it needs to receive a VAST response...

Here's what's being returned on your ad tag:
