Video Advertising is an application that allows you to show a video to your end-users on the Splash Page.
The application allows for example to show a video to your user's after they do something in the Splash Page (connect, login, logout, registration...) and you can do this by adding the Video Advertising app to the Access Journey.
You can also add Video Advertisement to the App Bar, and show the video when the user clicks on the “Video Advertising” item.
The application works both for Organization and Location Managers.
The video must be coded as MP4, have the .mp4 file extension and must be hosted somewhere on the Internet.
If you are showing this video to offline users, please make sure that the host you are using is in the walled garden.
