Listening for VAST events

Hi JWPlayer team,

is it possible to listen for specific VAST events, like progress, firstQuartile and such?

For example, you provide onAdClick(callback) in your API, but is there something like onFirstQuartile(callback)?

Best regards,

You can do something like this:

file: “content.mp4”,
primary: ‘flash’,
advertising: {
tag: ‘ad-tag’,
client: ‘vast’

var remaining = Math.round(event.duration-event.position);
var position = Math.round(event.position);
var quartile = Math.round(event.duration/4);
var first = quartile;
var second = (quartile*2);
var third = (quartile*3);
console.log(“progress”,"The ad completes in “+ remaining +” seconds.“);
console.log(”firstq",“First Quartile Reached”);
} else if(positionsecond){ console.log("secondq","Second Quartile Reached"); } else if(positionthird){
console.log(“thirdq”,“Third Quartile Reached”);

Best Regards,
