We already live in a world of social networks and thanks to them, and smartphones, video consumption has gone sky high. They have become an integral part of how people around the world discover, watch and share videos they care about every day. Most people would like to have the same experience on their websites as familiarity may enhance their user interaction. So, we listened to your feedback and today, we wanted to update you on some of the things we’ve been working on over the past year, along with some of the new features you may see in the coming months.
This new feature is designed to mimic the look, feel and functionality of videos in Facebook news feeds, allowing your users to have a familiar user experience for video as they do on the hugely popular social network.
Your player and video will autoplay on your site in the same fashion as Facebook video. Clicking on the muted content will bring up a lightbox, and, just as in Facebook, below the player a related playlist of videos will display depending on your player settings.
Click on the player below to launch the Facebook like experience!
Depending on the ad creatives returned from your VAST tags, the pre roll will either display in-page on your mobile device, or it will display in fullscreen if there is no appropriate video rendition for in-page playback.
Make sure to look at it on mobile and desktop!
