    Hi @truegodtv, Take a look at Exclusive Campaigns and/or Companion Positioning.

    How to Embed Inline Video Ad

    Hi @JMKL, Not at all - Revive Adserver supports both inline and overlay video ads out of the box: https://documentation.revive-adserver.com/display/DOCS/Inline+Video+banners https://documentation.revive-adserver.com/display/DOCS/Overlay+Video+banners The above thread was about the video player that is embedded in the page that the user will view. Revive Adserver does not provide such a player - just the capability to deliver video banners. The player used then needs to support the display of banners, using VAST 1.0, which is what Revive Adserver uses.
  5. Hi @remy_php, I can confirm that Revive Adserver does not currently support VAST 2.0 natively, and therefore, a plugin will be required for this. However, the core Revive Adserver team will not specifically recommend any one 3rd party plugin provider over another - please speak with those providers that you feel meet your requirements, and evaluate their offering carefully as you would with any other purchasing decision. Sincerely, Andrew

    10x lower impressions vs rv_data_bkt_m

    Hi @scalemates, Okay, that's really interesting! Could you please take a look in your debug log? There should be some output every hour when the maintenance script runs. Could you please capture just the output from the maintenance script, and post? (Possibly copy the contents of the current debug log just before scheduled maintenance, then empty the file, so that you can capture just the output from the maintenance script.) Thanks.

    guest url should change

    Sorry @Korona, but I really have no idea what you are asking.

    Revive Adserver free not plugins?

    Hi @Korona, Sorry, but it's not clear what you are now asking.

    Empty delivery rules and no statistics

    Hi @kmanz, Glad to hear you fixed this, but for reference for anyone else, there's a step in the https://documentation.revive-adserver.com/display/DOCS/Revive+Adserver+Broken page which covers broken/missing plugins, so following the troubleshooting guide for a "Broken Revive Adserver" does cover this! Thanks.

    Not able to get the response with anchor tag & the banner

    Can you please post screenshots of the two banners in the UI? Looks to me like the one that is not working does not have any link information added to the banner...

    Targeting subscriber_packages

    The plugins required for the out-of-the-box Delivery Rules in Revive Adserver all included and installed by default. You don't need to add extra plugins, unless you have something specific that you want to add that's not provided by default. Please see: https://documentation.revive-adserver.com/display/DOCS/Site+Delivery+Rules https://documentation.revive-adserver.com/display/DOCS/Changes+to+Banners+and+Zones+Not+Appearing
  12. Sounds like an issue with iOS or the app - I can't see how Revive Adserver would change the size of the ad, given how it delivers the content....

    revive login and panel appears different

    The usual cause of the UI not showing correctly are adblockers - see our documentation please! Otherwise, please submit a pull request in GitHub if you have discovered browser-specific UI layout issues. Thanks!

    mysql slaves

    A possibly more nuanced answer: No - you cannot use MySQL Slaves for read-only DB access with Revive Adserver - there is no support in the application to direct reads to slave databases, and writes to a master database. We do not recommend the use of distributed statistics any more - it's effectively unsupported. 14k ops (presumably database operations?) is not necessarily a large number - depends on the timescale. I have seen Revive Adserver running on a single MySQL and perform 2.5k ops per second. It really depends on what bottleneck you are seeing - and what other optimizations you have attempted re: performance. Maybe it's time to write a performance optimization guide....
