Pre-Roll Lightbox Ads With Oculu
In this example, a pre-roll video ad is delivered to the Oculu player from our partner, Google via a Lighbox. A viewer simply clicks on the image and the video player appears as a lightbox. The ad then instantly plays before the viewer’s intended video content begins. ( click the video above to see how this performs in our player )
In this tutorial, the 1st step is to click on the features tab and set your ads. When your ads are set they will appear in the dropdown on video setting page.
Create /Add New Tag
The next step is to click on the videos tab, choose the desired video title, scroll down to Lightbox Video, get the code, copy the load script, insert it into your Web page, copy the DIV code and paste it into your Web page as well.
Click on Video Title
Next, go to “Start Asset URL.” Select, Create Your Own.” Choose desired frames and click “save.”
