    Need video player that supports HTML5 & Flash, compatible with the VAST standards. Does anyone have such experience? Have you ever deal with cedato, jw player or adplayer.pro? Thanks in advance.

    should?

    it's been irrelevant for ages.
    I don't have flash on my computer, haven't noticed any content is missing on the sites I visit. It can't be used on phones so why have it at all?

    Absolutely agree with you, Sarah. Unfortunately, we still have some Flash content that haven't been updated with non-Flash features. I've heard somewhere that this technology will not be updated from the end of the current year. Hope we'll cope with this till the end of 2020. So I'm looking for something supporting both Flash & HTML5 while we are migrating old objects to new formats.

    It does not matter what Flash content you may have, your visitors will not, if they
    have any sense, have the Flash plugin with which to view it. :D

    Thanks a lot for your advice Denis! Regarding Flash content, we're still observing some demand on it, but understand that it should be transformed asap. Did you have a chance to test some of popular now outstream solutions? Could you share any feedback if yes?

    Personally, i don't believe that one should use third party options.
    Use your own videos and display them with the HTML5 video element and mp4 video files.

    The support for this setup is very good.

    Source:-

    MPEG-4/H.264 video format

    Appreciate your help, Denis. Some 3rd party players look very attractive as we can monetize with their demand, also UIs are logical and easy-to-use, they provide a lot of additional features that I wouldn't expect from a video player. I'm afraid that the implementation process can be complicated and expensive. What are your concerns regarding such a solutions?

    The video inventory can be set up as Instream or Outstream and I've explained both these setups as follows:

    Instream
    You can serve Instream video ads wherein ads will play with the video content or video player environment of your website. (i.e similar to Youtube ads). To do this setup, you will have to create an account video hosting platform such as Brightcove or Ooyala and host your content and implement their video players on your site. After creating the video hosting account, you can proceed to set up these ads in Ad manager.

    Create a Video Ad-unit: This is used to define your Video inventory.
    Create a Video line item: You will have to target the Ad-units created inside the line item.
    Generate Video Tag: This Tag needs to implemented inside your Video hosting platform to trigger Ad requests to the Video Player.

    Outstream
    You can serve In-Banner video ads aka Out Stream video ads if you don't have a video player inventory setup that I've mentioned above. These are Video ads serving in your display inventory. All you need is video creative and click URL from the client. For the files less than 1 MB, you can directly build the creatives using Google Web Designer and here are the instructions to build the creative and implement Click Tags.

    If the File exceeds 1 MB, you can host the creative in your CMS and implement a link to the source.

    Hope this helps! Let me know if you have further questions. Also, I can also help you do the setup myself if you feel that this is too technical and you need assistance with the implementation.
