Adding interstitial advertisements to the playlist file

An advertisement can originate from your local file system or from an Advertising Service Vendor. When the advertisement is added to your playlist, its role attribute is marked as advertisement and its noSkip attribute is marked as TRUE. This allows you to filter logging data and makes the playback of the file mandatory if the user wants to continue to receive the content in the playlist.

In Identify the location of the advertisement, type the directory path or click Browse to locate your advertising content. If you want to specify advertising content supplied by an advertising partner, type the URL of the remote server.
