Adding InStream video ads

InStream is a video ad shown in the video player. For more information, see the Yandex Advertising Network and ADFOX help.
Note. The InStream video ads are shown only in the video transmitted in the figure element. Ads are not displayed in videos from external resources.

Follow these steps to enable ads:

Step 1. Creating an ad block

Note. A default block is added to Turbo pages:
  • Block type: mid-roll. Displayed during the video playback.
  • Start: from the 10th second.
  • Cycle: every 10 minutes, up to 100 repetitions.

To create an InStream block, contact YAN support service. In your message, indicate that you want to create InStream video ads for Turbo pages, your username in YAN, and the domain.

When your message is processed, you will receive an email with the Page ID. Use it when connecting.

Step 2. Adding and checking

To connect the InStream block:

  1. In Yandex.Webmaster, go to the Turbo pages → Settings → Advertising page and choose Desktop.
  2. In the Ads in videos block, click Add and select the ad block type.
  3. Depending on the block type, enter the block ID in the YAN field or the embed code in the ADFOX field.
  4. Save your changes.
  5. Wait about an hour and check the block display on the real Turbo page. InStream doesn't appear in sample Turbo pages.
