Enabling InStream video ads

InStream is an ad video shown inside a video player. For more information, see the YAN Help and ADFOX Help.
Note. InStream video ads can only be shown inside videos passed in the figure element. Ads are not shown in videos from external resources.

Follow these steps to enable this type of ad:

Step 1. Creating an ad block

Note. On Turbo pages, a default block is enabled:
  • Block type: mid-roll. It's displayed during video playback.
  • Start: from the 10th second.
  • Cycle: every 10 minutes, up to 100 repetitions.

To create an InStream block, contact YAN support. In your message, specify that you want to create an InStream video ad for Turbo pages and provide your YAN username and domain.

When your request is processed, you will get an email with your Page ID. Use this ID when enabling the ads.

Step 2. Enabling and checking

To enable an InStream block:

  1. In Yandex.Webmaster, go to Turbo pages → Settings → Ads and select the Desktop option.
  2. In the Ads in video section, click Add and select the ad block type.
  3. Depending on the block type, enter the block ID in the YAN field or the embed code in the ADFOX field.
  4. Save changes.
  5. In about an hour, check the ad block display on a real Turbo page. The InStream videos are not shown in the sample Turbo page.
