VAST, Wrapper

VAST Tag, Wrapper


Use this creative type if you have a VAST tag from a 3rd party ad server. Please note, video companion events will not be tracked when using a 3rd party tag. Also, macros included in XML will not expand, so customers must include macros in the VAST tag itself and pass to the XML. The following fields are available:
