Prerequisites - AWS Elemental MediaTailor


The following prerequisites apply when using overlay ads with MediaTailor:

  • The workflow must be live, not video on demand (VOD).

  • The Ad Decision Server (ADS) response must be configured to return only non-linear ads in the VAST response. MediaTailor ignores any linear ads for the purposes of ad stitching.

  • The manifest must use a SCTE-35 time signal message with segmentation type id=0x38 to invoke the overlay-ad feature.

  • The streaming provider must have control of the client-device application and be integrated with the MediaTailor client-side tracking API.
