Video Display Modes

The Connatix platform offers multiple types of creatives that render in the ad unit and one of them is the Video creative. Each ad unit has associated a Video Display Mode setup. This setup applies when the creative that renders on your ad unit is Video. The available Video Display Modes are:

                          • LightBox
                          • Instead of Ad
                          • Instead of Ad Image
                          • Below Ad
                          •Ad In Place

1. LightBox

The Video creative will open on click in a LightBox, containing a video that automatically plays.

2. Instead of Ad

Allows the Video creative to be displayed instead of the Ad. This Video Display Mode has minimum size requirements: 351x201 or 301x251. You can allow the video to Autoplay and set to Mute.  Add on the parent element the attribute cnx-video-ratio="width:height" [ 16:9; 4:3; 300:200 ] and class class="cnx-adUnit-video-container". Based on this attribute and the actual width of the ad unit,  the height of the video will be established, therefore the size of the ad unit.

3. Instead of Ad Image

The Video creative will automatically be displayed instead of the Ad's image. On the <img /> element  of the Ad Unit, add the following class="connatix-video-image" and the ratio attribute cnx-video-ratio="width:height". 

This Video Display Mode has minimum size requirements: 351x201 or 301x251. You can allow the video to Autoplay and set to Mute. 

4. Below Ad

The Ad will be left as it is and the Video creative will be displayed below the actual Ad.

In order for this to happen, you need to add an empty container to your Ad Unit HTML. The element you add as a video container will have:

   <div id="cnx-video-container" cnx-video-ratio="width:height"></div>

This syntax needs to be added as the last element in your ad unit, before the closing tag. 

This Video Display Mode has minimum size requirements: 351x201 or 301x251. You can allow the video to Autoplay and set to Mute. 

5. Ad in place

The behavior is the same as for the Lightbox, but upon clicking, the video creative is played instead of ad.
