Changes to VOD
The ad timeline appropriate to one playing of VOD content may be inappropriate for subsequent plays. You can replace a VOD timeline without changing the content.
Situations in which you might wish to replace a VOD timeline include:
- Replace local ads, but leave national ads during a C3 window.
- Replace burnt-in ads after the C3 window closes.
- Dynamically replace old C3 ads with newer ads of greater duration.
- Insert fewer ads or none at all.
You can replace the ad timeline by submitting a new ad insertion request with the original M3U8 file and a different value of the pttimeline query parameter.
