How to add Ads in the adpod from two different APIs?

Hi All,

I am trying to find the solution for showing the Ads from two different APIs, which is to be added in a single adpod.

Any help or source code would be appreciated 🙂

Re: How to add Ads in the adpod from two different APIs?

You can do that, see the ad structure that can be used to RAF.importAds()
https://sdkdocs.roku.com/display/sdkdoc ... dStructure

It's an array of ad pods. Where each pod is AA with `ads` being an array of ads. You can simply do
myAdPod.ads.append(newAd)
myAdPod.duration += newAd.duration

something like that

Re: How to add Ads in the adpod from two different APIs?

adIface = Roku_Ads()
    url = ""
    m.adIface.setAdUrl(url)
    
    adPods = m.adIface.getAds()
    if adPods <> invalid and adPods.Count() > 0
       shouldPlayContent = m.adIface.showAds(adPods)
   end if[/color]

^Code snippet is somewhat like this, In case of passing Array of URLs (Two different URLs) I am getting an exception
Can you suggest the changes?

Actually, I was able to play 3 ads using 3 different URL in sequence. but I want to show the adPods count 1 of 3, 2 of 3 and 3 of 3. currently it shows 1 of 1 for each ad.

Re: How to add Ads in the adpod from two different APIs?

something like this? (typed, not tried)

adBreak = invalid
for each url in urls
   raf.setAdUrl(url)
   adPods = raf.getAds()
   if adPods <> invalid and adPods.Count() > 0
       if adBreak = invalid
           adBreak = adPods
       else ' assuming VAST, only 1 pod '
           adBreak[0].ads.append(adPods[0].ads)
           adBreak[0].duration += adPods[0].duration
       end if
   end if
next
if adBreak <> invalid
  shouldPlayContent = raf.showAds(adBreak)
end if
