Stopping ads during play - client side ads


Is it possible to stop an ad playing programmatically?

I am implementing client side ads. The ad obviously plays in a different video component than the normal content plays in. For this reason I don't seem to have control over the stopping of the ad and even removing the video component itself does to not stop the ad playing.

The only way to stop it is by pressing the back key on the remote.

Can someone suggest if it is possible to stop the ad? 

The reason I am asking is because of using roInput during playback

Re: Stopping ads during play - client side ads

Either your channel integrates ads or not.  If you're asking how to stop ads from playing on other channels, forget about it.
