Playlist, quality switcher, etc.

If content player's source is changed, it reinitialize IMA SDK and play ads again. To prevent this behaviour (i.e. switching quality), you have to set player.ads.contentSrc="new-source.mp4" before calling player.src("new-source.mp4").

Methods (bound to player.ima)

updateOptions({options}) -- sets new IMA options. This options is applied once content player source is changed.

play() -- call this method to play ad only when autoPlayAdBreaks is set to false and adBreakReady occurs. Otherwise resumes paused ad.

pause() -- pauses current ad.

Disabled ad autoplay

Timing of ad playback is handled by IMA SDK. If autoplayAdBreaks is set to false, this feature is turned off and is up to you when you play the ad (once adBreakReady is triggered).

  1. Set autoPlayAdBreaks to false
  2. Listen and play on adBreakReady player.ima.on('adBreakReady', player.ima.play)

About timeouts

This integration use hard timeout 5s. If ad is not loaded within given time, IMA silently skips current ad and resumes content playback. You can adjust this timeout by timeout setting. As IMA SDK supports only one timeout value, different preroll/postroll timeouts are not supported in this plugin. Default: timeout = 5000, adsRenderingSettings.loadVideoTimeout = timeout.
