Disable Ad Count - Roku Ad Lib

Hi All -

I'm using the Roku Ad library in my application, and when ads play I see "Ad 1 / 2" on the screen. Can I disable this somehow? I don't see this enabled in other apps.

Not possible with the current version of RAF

Technically, you could do it by implementing a custom UI and only using RAF for VAST parsing, but in the long run that's not an ideal solution.

As long as we're discussing things in the RAF that maybe should be customizable, it would be nice to be able to modify the "Your program will return after this message" (from memory, so that may not be quite right). I don't have a program that's going to return.

These types of things are on the todo list, but may not happen in the near term. As TheEndless points out, you are always free to build your own player to render the ads and just use RAF for parsing and tracking. That approach is described in Section 2.2 of the RAF documentation. But that's a bit more work and you won't get the all the features of RAF rendering.

Thanks for the response, Chris. It's not a big deal. It's nice to know it's on the list.
