Requesting In-Stream (pre-roll) Video Ads – Android SDK 3.6

In-Stream Video Ads is a video ad format that can be used to display video ads anywhere within your app in a linear manner (pre-roll) or after intervals (mid-roll, post-roll) as supported by the formats in conjunction with your video content. This creates a native ad experience for the end user.

Important Note: Since VMAX SDK version 3.5.18, we have enhanced the program instructions for in-stream video ads. If you are using an older version of the VMAX SDK and want to use in-stream ads, it is recommended that you upgrade at the earliest.

Note: Ensure that your video player is implementing VMAXVideoPlayer interfaces so that the VMAX SDK will be able to give the required events.
For your reference purpose, We have created VMAX Sample App for Rewarded Video adspot. This app is open source and uploaded on Github where you can download and read example code for requesting In-stream Video Ads
