Video ad on my website

Discussion in 'HTML & Website Design' started by Panphobia, May 4, 2013.

    Hello, I am making a website. Basically I want to give my music away for free. However, to offset the costs of hosting and production I would like to place a video ad before the DL.

    So, my idea is that you click on the link for DL, watch video, and then get access to the mp3. Is this possible? Any pointers in the correct direction would be great.

    If video ads are not possible, maybe the type where you click on the link, and then get a ad that says "click here to skip this ad". What kind of ad is this?

    Thanks for any help, and sorry for being such a noob. I honestly don't even know what to search for on google.

    If you are using wordpress, you can add this functionality by just simply installing a plugin.
    Checkout this plugin: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/all-in-one-video-pack/
    You can use a PHP script for it if you are using non wordpress website.

    Look up some different ad programs, then maybe do it like this:

    Click the link on your site -- the "a href=" points to the ad.

    Then in your ad script, you tell it to point to the actual mp3 file?

    This way, when you click the link for the music file(mp3), you get an ad. After the ad, you get the music!

    You could take MediaElementJS and customize the video player to do this for you.
