Mark ranges

You can designate time intervals in VOD content as ad breaks.
The TimeRanges between the begin and end in localTime will be marked as an AdBreak in the timeline. Other ad settings are ignored.
If you want to only mark certain ranges in the content as ads, with no dynamic ad insertion, create a CustomRangeMetadata instance, and specify the type as a MARK operation with the defined custom ranges.
  1. Tp mark the ranges:
