New Ad REST API, Time Based Break setting available in Pulse SDKs, full passback behaviour in HTML5 Pulse SDK, default skin for HTML5 ad player.
Ad REST API to Upload Assets and Create Ads
- upload assets into Ooyala Pulse,
- get metadata from uploaded assets,
- create and update ads,
- and get information about ads.
The Ad API is currently not part of the Booking API, because it uses a different base URL, authentication and format.
Time Based Break Setting Available in Pulse SDKs
The time based break functionality in Ooyala Pulse enables you to set a maximum duration for pre-, mid- and post-roll ad breaks. Setting the maximum duration in seconds for a break is now also available in the Pulse SDKs and is done through adding the parameter when you request an ad session from Pulse:
- HTML5 (from v22.214.171.124.3): OO.Pulse.RequestSettings.maxLinearBreakDuration
- Android (from v126.96.36.199.0): RequestSettings.setMaxLinearBreakDuration()
- iOS & tvOS (from v188.8.131.52.0): VPRequestSettings.maxLinearBreakDuration
Refer to Time Based Breaks for more information regarding time based breaks, where to set it and its limitations.
