HTML5 audio ads (IMA)

Documentation sections

Scope of support for HTML5 audio ads (IMA)

Radiant Media Player supports streaming to HTML5 audio in HLS, DASH or progressive download with flexible configuration options. See our HTML5 audio docs for more information.

HTML5 audio ads are supported within our HTML5 audio player through the Google IMA SDK in various formats: M4A (AAC), MP3 or even HLS (where natively supported by the device). Other formats (like Vorbis or Opus in .oga or .webm) may work depending on device capabilities. We currently do not support HTML5 audio ads with rmp-vast.

HTML5 audio ads be linear audio-ads. Non-linear or Skippable Linear audio ads are not supported as they would not fit within the HTML5 audio player.

HTML5 audio ads and our HTML5 audio player can be controlled through our player API & ads API. You can also use ad waterfalling or our ad scheduler for HTML5 audio ads.

Usage example

Single linear preroll HTML5 audio ad:
