Uploading a Video Advertisement

Before you can add a video advertisement to a video, you must upload the video advertisement.

To upload a video ad:

  1. Log in to the Backlot UI.
  2. Click ADD CONTENT and select AD.
  3. Select the file to upload and click Open. The ad appears on the MANAGE page as Backlot begins processing the file. After Backlot completes, it will change the STATUS of the video to LIVE
  4. Click the Ad Details tab and specify the Default Click URL when the ad is clicked. Additionally, you can specify the Default Tracking Pixel URL. The click URL is the webpage that users are directed to when they click the ad. The click URL is also used by ad sources to track click-through and the tracking pixel URL is used to track ad impressions.
