Mark ranges

To implement the PTTimeRangeCollection and mark ranges of content as ads:
  1. Prepare the PTTimeRangeCollection .
  2. Set the type of the PTTimeRangeCollection to PTTimeRangeCollectionTypeMarkRanges .
    This step notifies TVSDK that the custom ranges must be treated like ads.
    #define PSDK_TIMESCALE 100000 
    
    NSArray *ranges =  @[ 
      [PTReplacementRange  
        replacementRangeWithRange:CMTimeRangeMake(CMTimeMakeWithSeconds 
          (0, PSDK_TIMESCALE),CMTimeMakeWithSeconds(60, AD_TIMESCALE))], 
      [PTReplacementRange  
        replacementRangeWithRange:CMTimeRangeMake(CMTimeMakeWithSeconds 
          (120, PSDK_TIMESCALE),CMTimeMakeWithSeconds(60, AD_TIMESCALE))] 
    ]; 
    
    PTTimeRangeCollection *timeRangeCollection =  
      [[PTTimeRangeCollection alloc] initWithRanges:ranges  
        type:PTTimeRangeCollectionTypeMarkRanges];
    
    
  3. Create the PTAdMetadata and set the PTTimeRangeCollection .
    // Create the PTPlayerItem metadata 
    PTMetadata *metadata = [[PTMetadata alloc] init]; 
    
    // Create the Ad metadata 
    PTAuditudeMetadata *adMetadata = [[PTAuditudeMetadata alloc] init]; 
    adMetadata.timeRangeCollection = timerangeCollection; 
    
    //Set Ad metadata 
    [metadata setMetadata:adMetadata forKey:PTAdResolvingMetadataKey]; 
    
    //Create PTMediaPlayerItem 
    PTMediaPlayerItem *playerItem = [[[PTMediaPlayerItem alloc] initWithUrl:mediaUrl 
                                                                    mediaId:mediaId 
                                                                   metadata:metadata];
    
    
  4. Create the player and start playback.
    //Create PTMediaPlayer using the created PTMediaPlayer 
    PTMediaPlayer *player = [PTMediaPlayer playerWithMediaPlayerItem:playerItem]; 
    
    //Add player to the player UIView 
    [self.playerView addSubview:(UIView *)player.view]; 
    
    //Start playback 
    [player play];
    
    

Replace ranges

To implement the PTTimeRangeCollection and delete ranges of content as ads:
  1. Prepare PTTimeRangeCollection .
  2. Set the type of the PTTimeRangeCollection to PTTimeRangeCollectionTypeReplaceRanges .
    This step notifies TVSDK that the provided ranges need to be replaced with alternate content (ads).
    #define PSDK_TIMESCALE 100000 
    
    NSArray *ranges =  @[ 
      [PTReplacementRange replacementRangeWithRange:CMTimeRangeMake(CMTimeMakeWithSeconds 
        (0, PSDK_TIMESCALE),CMTimeMakeWithSeconds(60, AD_TIMESCALE))  
        replacementDuration:CMTimeMakeWithSeconds(30, AD_TIMESCALE)], 
      [PTReplacementRange replacementRangeWithRange:CMTimeRangeMake(CMTimeMakeWithSeconds 
        (120, PSDK_TIMESCALE),CMTimeMakeWithSeconds(60, AD_TIMESCALE))  
        replacementDuration:CMTimeMakeWithSeconds(30, AD_TIMESCALE)] 
                        ]; 
    
    PTTimeRangeCollection *timeRangeCollection =  
      [[PTTimeRangeCollection alloc] initWithRanges:ranges  
                                               type:PTTimeRangeCollectionTypeReplaceRanges];
    
    
    The argument replacementDuration is optional. If it is not defined, the AdServer determines the duration of the ad break.
  3. Create the PTAdMetadata and set the PTTimeRangeCollection .
    //Create the PTPlayerItem metadata 
    PTMetadata *metadata = [[PTMetadata alloc] init]; 
    
    //Create the Ad metadata 
    PTAuditudeMetadata *adMetadata = [[PTAuditudeMetadata alloc] init]; 
    adMetadata.timeRangeCollection = timerangeCollection; 
    adMetadata.zoneId = adZoneId; 
    adMetadata.domain = adDomain; 
    adMetadata.signalingMode = PTAdSignalingModeCustomRanges; 
    
    //Set Ad metadata 
    [metadata setMetadata:adMetadata forKey:PTAdResolvingMetadataKey]; 
    
    //Create PTMediaPlayerItem 
    PTMediaPlayerItem *playerItem = [[[PTMediaPlayerItem alloc] initWithUrl:mediaUrl 
                                                                    mediaId:mediaId 
                                                                   metadata:metadata];
    
    
    Although the signalingMode is set as PTAdSignalingModeCustomRanges , this ad signaling mode is set automatically when setting the PTTimeRangeCollection of type PTTimeRangeCollectionTypeReplace .
  4. Create the player and start playback.
    //Create PTMediaPlayer using the created PTMediaPlayer 
    PTMediaPlayer *player = [PTMediaPlayer playerWithMediaPlayerItem:playerItem]; 
    
    //Add player to the player UIView 
    [self.playerView addSubview:(UIView *)player.view]; 
    
    //Start playback 
    [player play];
    
    

Delete Ranges

To implement the PTTimeRangeCollection and delete ranges of content as ads:
  1. Prepare the PTTimeRangeCollection .
  2. Set the type of the PTTimeRangeCollection to PTTimeRangeCollectionTypeDeleteRanges , which notifies TVSDK that the provided ranges need to be deleted.
    #define PSDK_TIMESCALE 100000 
    
    NSArray *ranges =  @[ 
      [PTReplacementRange replacementRangeWithRange:CMTimeRangeMake(CMTimeMakeWithSeconds 
        (0, PSDK_TIMESCALE),CMTimeMakeWithSeconds(60, AD_TIMESCALE))], 
      [PTReplacementRange replacementRangeWithRange:CMTimeRangeMake(CMTimeMakeWithSeconds 
        (120, PSDK_TIMESCALE),CMTimeMakeWithSeconds(60, AD_TIMESCALE))] 
    ]; 
    
    PTTimeRangeCollection *timeRangeCollection =  
      [[PTTimeRangeCollection alloc] initWithRanges:ranges  
                                               type:PTTimeRangeCollectionTypeDeleteRanges];
    
    
  3. Create the PTAdMetadata and set the PTTimeRangeCollection .
    //Create the PTPlayerItem metadata 
    PTMetadata *metadata = [[PTMetadata alloc] init]; 
    
    //Create the Ad metadata 
    PTAuditudeMetadata *adMetadata = [[PTAuditudeMetadata alloc] init]; 
    adMetadata.timeRangeCollection = timerangeCollection; 
    adMetadata.zoneId = adZoneId; 
    adMetadata.domain = adDomain; 
    adMetadata.signalingMode = PTAdSignalingModeServerMap; 
    
    //Set Ad metadata 
    [metadata setMetadata:adMetadata forKey:PTAdResolvingMetadataKey]; 
    
    //Create PTMediaPlayerItem 
    PTMediaPlayerItem *playerItem = [[[PTMediaPlayerItem alloc] initWithUrl:mediaUrl 
                                                                    mediaId:mediaId 
                                                                   metadata:metadata];
    
    
    Ad insertion occurs after the deletion of the custom ranges based on the PTAdMetadata and the current PTAdSignalingMode .
  4. Create the player and start playback.
    //Create PTMediaPlayer using the created PTMediaPlayer 
    PTMediaPlayer *player = [PTMediaPlayer playerWithMediaPlayerItem:playerItem]; 
    
    //Add player to the player UIView 
    [self.playerView addSubview:(UIView *)player.view]; 
    
    //Start playback 
    [player play];
