Automatic Ad Breaks

šŸš§

Note

This feature is only available for advanced_hls, fmp4_hls, advanced_dash, and advanced_fmp4 output formats.

To create automatic ad breaks you can use our multijob feature.

Each (<sourceĀ /> parameter) will be converted to program segments in output, and an ad marker placed between each.
For Dash manifests you will need to set <multijob_workflow /> parameter to yes.
For HLS manifests you will need to set <ad_break /> parameter to auto.
