Enable Google DAI playback

Enable ad playback with the Google Dynamic Ad Insertion ad client

JW Player's Google IMA Dynamic Ad Insertion (DAI) integration allows you to deliver ads and content within a single manifest. By eliminating the buffering between ads and content, this single manifest improves the user experience. After acquiring the required items listed in the Requirement section, you can enable Google DAI ad playback in your web player content.

IMPORTANT

For the following reasons, be sure that the URL used for the playlist[].file is consistent with the media content registered with Google DAI for your videoID or assetKey:

• If the DAI request fails, the video URL will play as a fallback.
• Analytics will be attributed to correct media item.

Use the following steps to set up dynamic ad insertion for a single playlist item:

  1. For a specific playlist item, define a daiSetting object with your Google account information.

    • If you are displaying a video on demand (VOD), define cmsID and videoID
    • If you are displaying a live stream, define assetKey.
  2. If your content is protected, set the apiKey property within the daiSetting object.
  3. In the advertising object, set "client": "dai".
