This doesn’t seem like a traditional setup for JW6 Ads. I see you are using the Ooyala ad plugin and a lot of scripts. Usually setup is as easy as this:
<div id="container">Loading Video…</div>
<script> var playerone = jwplayer("container"); playerone.setup({ file:'mountains.mp4', width:'50%', aspectratio:'16:9', advertising: { client:"vast", tag: '' } }); </script> And no issues with clicking through. You may want to upgrade to an Ads account to support ads through JW Player instead of a 3rd party plugin.
