Open Video Ads products include a freely available open source framework that implements the IAB VAST and VPAID standards along with player specific plugin implementations for JW Player and Flowplayer that allow you to deliver video ads on either of these players "out-of-the-box".

If you have a custom video player use the OVA for AS3 VAST/VPAID framework to turn your own video player into a IAB compliant, "advertising enabled" player.
