Issues with Ad Rules with DFP Premium IMA SDK 3.0
We recently updated one of our video players to the new IMA SDK 3.0. There are two outstanding issues around the ad rules that we can't figure out.
1) Ad rules do not seem to take effect on the first load. If you go to - http://www.globaltv.com/elementary/video/the+rat+race/video.html?v=22967... there should always be a Lexus ad first refresh. But the first time you visit, it is random what loads. If you hit refresh, you get the expected behavior (Lexus then another ad). We have the ad rules set for 2 pre-rolls, but the first time you visit you usually only get one. I'm also concerned the key-value information isn't being passed since ROS ads serve first. Mid-rolls seem fine. Again, it is almost as if the ad rules load the first time out.
2) “Short” ads (under 3 minutes) seem to be ignored from any ad rules. I only have two rules set up, but the short clips - http://www.globaltv.com/saturdaynightlive/video/full+episodes/brad+pitt+... never load pre-rolls.
Has anyone else encountered this behavior?
