Three possible resources:
creativeType=”image/png” – Displays. Clicks thru correctly. Currently the only solution. Positioning is done with the xPostion yPosition attributes in VAST xml. Problems with this solution?
IFrameResource Displays. Image w/ styling appears. Icon clickthru does NOT work.
HTMLResource - Displays. Image w/ styling appears. Icon clickthru does NOT work. Note - link to an external HTML. Do not put HTML in
Conclusion… Image and js load. Icon click through is still obscured.
Possible Fix in IMA Player
In the support forum, a google dev has said the icon problem is fixed and a release has been made. Except - that it hasn’t. Continued pestering of their dev team is recommended. This should work. It’s in the VAST 3 spec.
Possible Solution - Custom js solution
This is does not appear to be immediately applicable to the problem at hand. But I was getting CORS errors when testing out tags hosted from various locations.
The VAST 3 Spec says:
Solution: on my personal server from where i’m pulling tags, I added this to the .htaccess file, for testing with the Google IMA HTML5 player:
Header add Access-Control-Allow-Origin: "http://imasdk.googleapis.com" Header add Access-Control-Allow-Credentials: true
JWPlayer and icon - not working. Not even a discussion of it working.
