Configuring Ads for Live Streams

Setting up ads for live streams is very similar to setting up ads for a VOD asset. The key difference is that, for live streams, the duration is unknown. Therefore, when you configure the ad position for a mid-roll ad in the Backlot UI, you must specify Time (not Percent).
This configures the ad to play a set time after the video started playing.
