If you are using Google Ad Manager for mediation, the JW player wouldn’t conduct the auction. All the bids are sent to GAM and Google chooses the winning line item to serve the ad. That being said, you need to configure ad server to integrate JW player for video bidding.
Here’s how to do it:
a. Create a video line item and create and update the key-values (from JW Player) in the targeting section.
|EMX||Value of the bid or nearest bucket increment|
|Pubmatic||Value of the bid or nearest bucket increment|
|SpotX||Value of the bid|
|Telaria||Value of the bid or nearest bucket increment|
b. Add video creatives. Make the creative set as “Redirect” and add the VAST tag URL from the player partners.
|PARTNER||VAST TAG URL|
Note that we have only discussed the ad server configuration here, you also need to enable video bidding in JW player to get started.
