Full Event Replay (FER) content is a live stream converted to VOD by adding the #EXT-X-ENDLIST tag to the end of the manifest file. The stream retains its ad cue markers.
Browser TVSDK treats a FER stream as VOD, so by default the ad signaling mode is
SERVER_MAP. However, since the stream retains its ad cue markers, you can set the ad signaling mode to
MANIFEST_CUES, which lets you use the ad cue markers for ad insertion.
To turn on ad insertion using cue markers for a FER stream:
var config = new AdobePSDK.MediaPlayerItemConfig(); config.adSignalingMode = AdobePSDK.AdSignalingMode.MANIFEST_CUES; player.replaceCurrentResource(mediaResource, config);
FER ad resolving and insertion behavior is similar to live ad resolving and insertion. Browser TVSDK does the following:
Restriction: Browser TVSDK supports only HLS FER streams playback. Also, MP4 mid-roll ads are not supported with FER streams.
