Monetizing Streams

ScaleEngine provides both VAST support and linear playlist support so you can show paid advertising on your streams.

Our VAST (Video Ad Serving Template) capability is built into our closely maintained version support for the clappr player. We generally provide the latest stable version of clappr that is bug-free and recent. The clappr plugin for VAST ads takes a URL that points at XML. These xml urls are templates that are generated by your ad serving provider. Check the VAST box in our embed generator, add the VAST URL, and your ad will play before your stream is viewed.

If you are a channel playlist user, you might want to schedule ads into your lists, between your content. The main advantage here is that the player cannot skip or block the ad, either with tracking protection or third party ad blockers.
