VOD timeline format

You can specify or override timelines for ad breaks in VOD content using a formatted list of ad and content segments called pods.

Pods

A pod is an ad break or a content segment. A timeline consists of a sequence of pods, separated by semicolons. The following types of pods exist:

Ad break

B,duration,maximum_number_of_ads,position

Duration is in seconds, with precision of .001 (milliseconds); number of ads is an integer. Position is one of the following: * n None — no ad * p Pre-roll — before the content * m Mid-roll — within the content * t Post-roll — after the content
For example, B,60,2,p represents a one-minute break for up to 2 ads before the content.

Content segment - chapter

C,duration,number_of_lots

Duration is in seconds, with precision of .001 (milliseconds); number of lots (sections of content) is an integer. For example, C,300,1 represents a single five-minute section of content.
