How To Create A Vast Tag Using Revive Adserver?

Recommended Posts

Getting the PreRoll Adzone for VAST with Revive Adserver

 

1.)  Create the Zone in Revive Adserver � NOTE YOU CANNOT SEE THE ADZONE yet

2.)  Create a Campaign and link to the zone

3.)  Create a Banner ad for this campaign

4.)  Select the zone to place the ad into and Document the ID  which in my case is 20

5.)  Script to add to the player

a.     http://{yourdomain.com}/{youradserverfolder}/www/delivery/fc.php?script=bannerTypeHtml:vastInlineBannerTypeHtml:vastInlineHtml&zones=pre-roll0-0%3D20&nz=1&source=&r=R0.023106331005692482&block=1&format=vast&charset=UTF-8

b.     Where the D20 is located in the script, change the 20 to the ID in Revive

Your message doesn't help solve your problem. You need to look at what your Revive Adserver is delivering  If you are not getting data from your adserver, then nothing will be displayed on the player.

What is your VAST Link? Click on the VAST link with your browser and you should have several pages of XML. If you don't have any XML, then your Revive Adserver system isn't setup to deliver ads.

There is my VAST TAG: http://www.festivaldelapoutine.com/regie/www/delivery/fc.php?script=bannerTypeHtml:vastInlineBannerTypeHtml:vastInlineHtml&zones=pre-roll0-0%3D1&nz=1&source=&r=R0.023106331005692482&block=1&format=vast&charset=UTF-8

 

I tried and I see the XML pages.

 

It's like if the ad is to start, but after 2 seconds the main video starts.

 

Thanks for your help!

Just to add on, I am facing the same Issue,
 

I tried to validate my VAST tag out here: http://www.zedo.com/vastvalidator/

 

This is my VAST tag: http://54.83.44.76/adserver/revive-adserver/www/delivery/fc.php?script=bannerTypeHtml:vastInlineBannerTypeHtml:vastInlineHtml&zones=pre-roll:0.0-0%3D2&nz=1&source=&r=R0.15132908197119832&block=1&format=vast&charset=UTF-8

 

The error that I get is as follows:

 

OVA CALLBACK EVENT: Ad Scheduling Started
OVA CALLBACK EVENT: OVA does not have any ads to play
ERROR:

[securityErrorEvent type=securityError" bubbles=false cancelable=false eventPhase=2 text="Error #2048]
 

 

Icepro, Thanks again for all the help. Any insight into this would be of further help. 

 

Regards,

HI! Guys,

 

We are also trying to enable preroll in our revive adserver instance. But are not able to do so.

 

We have created the banners and zones. But are stuck on the next steps. Where and how do we get the VAST ad tag?

 

Any help is highly appreciated.

 

Thanks!

AB

Thanks for your information! Where can I find the documentation about the link?

i.e.

 http://{yourdomain.com}/{youradserverfolder}/www/delivery/fc.php?script=bannerTypeHtml:vastInlineBannerTypeHtml:vastInlineHtml&zones=pre-roll0-0%3D20&nz=1&source=&r=R0.023106331005692482&block=1&format=vast&charset=UTF-8

 

I couldn't find it neither from the portal nor the Revive Adserver documentation.

 

Thank you very much for your help!

Our client has sent us a tag for a pre-roll.  It checks out fine.

 

The problem is that we need to serve this pre-roll to a number of sites.  So we entered the tag into a new campaign on our Revive server.  But so far we have not been able to use the format suggested by one of the forum users to generate a VAST tag that works on the VAST Ad Tester.

 

Can someone give me an example of a VAST tag that we can generate so the preroll can be served through our Revive ad server?

 

Thanks.

Out of the box, Revive Adserver v3.x only supports the VAST1 specifications, and it does not have support for creating pre-roll ads that are essentially using VAST2 tags from third parties.

 

I would like to suggest having a look at the Advanced Video Ads plugin that you can find here:

http://www.adserverplugins.com/advanced-video-ads-plugin-for-revive-adserver/

 

This plugin will enable you to traffic a third party VAST2 tag (we call this a Network Video Ad) as a banner, and then to serve that into any VAST2 compliant video player.

Full disclosure: this product has been developed and is being sold by my company.
