Can you explain in more detail - e.g. what ad server are you using?
And what do you mean by "is fetching all the ads at time of preroll gets loaded which delays the video for long time" - do you have them playing correctly later at the right spots as mid-rolls and post-roll - or do you mean everything plays as pre-roll?
Also how many ads are we talking about as a number?

Re: RAF fetching all the ads at once

we are using DFP ad server ..all the ads(including  midrolls and postrolls) are fetched at the start of main video due to which video playback has some latency ....but mid -rolls and post-rolls are rendered at their predefined time..i want to minimise the the playback latency ..how can i do that ?

What is your setup in more detail? Are you using Roku Direct Publisher?
