Video Skin Marquee

Table of Contents

Introduction

This is a highly customizable and very easy to use animated Video Skin template for Desktop sites.

User experience

A user opens the webpage and sees a video skin background. On tab click, the initial area of the top banner expands to cover the page content. The banner offers additional rich media experience. The banner accommodates a link to the predefined landing page. The ad maintains this size until the user clicks the Close button.

Creative assets

The following items are to be delivered by a creative agency:

  • Video player needs a MP4/WEBM format videos 640x360.
  • Banner assets containing manifest.json file and HTML file zipped together with images, scripts and other material.

NOTE: manifest.json file and HTML file should be in the root directory of the .zip file.

NOTE: In order to use Adform components for HTML, it is necessary to define global preloadQueue array, where you push all the wanted components to preload before script execution and to load Adform.DHTML.js

INFO: Please refer to the Video Player component for more detailed information on component setup and behavior.

Manifest.json file

  • Manifest.json file should define the ad dimensions and the HTML file which is used as a banner source.
  • HTML file should include Adform HTML library which enables the banner to receive a clickTAG variable:
    <script src="https://s1.adform.net/banners/scripts/rmb/Adform.DHTML.js"></script>
