Monetize your videos and live streams with ads! We support different ad modes - video, banner, native and interstitial ads.

In this section, we cover video ads.

We have built a robust ad-server that is integrated with our platform. The ad-server supports video assets, VAST, VPAID, and programmatic tags. You can create and manage multiple campaigns at the same time.

How Ventuno serves ads to viewers

Ventuno follows the waterfall model for running campaigns.

In the waterfall model, the campaign with the highest priority is first shown to viewers when they click on a video. If the campaign doesn’t return an ad, the campaign with the second priority is shown. The process repeats until the campaign with the least priority is shown. If none of the campaigns return an ad, the viewer will be able to play the video without any ad.

If ad one

Else ad two

Else ad three

And so on….
