Preroll for VOD files


Is it possible to implement the following:

  1. User requests some VOD file

  2. Server gives user a small preroll video (5 sec), and what this video will be - depends on what video was requested and query string of the request.

  3. After preroll end the user starts watching requested VOD file.

(!) What is important - no special client-side coding should be done for this.

I understand that it is not so trivial, but I hope solution(s) exists.

Thank you!

This post shows how to do this server-side with no client modification:


Thank you Richard!

seems to be what I was looking for :slight_smile:
