2018-10-12 Release

Sponsor Ad Position, Android and iOS SDK Ad Break Type.

Sponsor Ad Position

Previously, sponsor ads were always shown closest to the video content: after pre-rolls, after mid-rolls, and before post-rolls. Now, you have the option to show all ads from a sponsor goal either only before or only after the relevant linear ad break by setting the Ad position at creation time.

Sponsor Goal Ad Position
Note: If you want to show sponsor ads before and after a linear ad break, which may be desirable for mid-roll ad breaks, then you must set up two separate sponsor goals: one selecting the before ad position, and one selecting the after ad position.

Android and iOS SDK Ad Break Type

From version 2.5.18.19.0, the Android and iOS SDKs contain methods to retrieve the type of linear ad break that is currently playing. This provides you information on whether a pre-roll, mid-roll, or post-roll ad break is being shown.
