Brightcove Player HTML5 Plugin

How to integrate Ooyala Pulse ad delivery with the Brightcove Player version 5.x or higher using the VideoJS HTML5 plugin.

Introduction

The Brightcove Player HTML5 plugin is the easiest and prefered way to integrate your Brightcove Player with Ooyala Pulse for ad serving, because the plugin automatically takes care of:
  • ad selection,
  • ad playback,
  • ad tracking and error handling,
  • and handling VPAID 1.0 and VPAID 2.0 ads.

Currently, the plugin is limited to displaying linear ads (pre-, mid-, and post-rolls) and pause ads.

Note: This plugin replaces our older (Deprecated) Brightcove Perform Plugin (HTML5) and any customers using the older plugin are recommended to migrate over to this plugin as soon as possible.

Plugin Location and Tutorial

To integrate, you must have a Brightcove Player version 5.x or higher up and running on your site, as well as an Ooyala Pulse account and a unique ID (pulseHost).

The plugin is located on GitHub: Ooyala Pulse Plugin for VideoJS and Brightcove Player. This location contains:
  • the plugin source file,
  • information on how to build the project,
  • a tutorial on how to get started with an integration,
  • information on any optional steps in the integration,
  • and the API reference documentation.
