m3u8 media files in VAST xml problem


jwPlayer skips ads when I put m3u8 files in VAST xml, while mp4 files work fine.
Here's how I set the m3u8:

<MediaFile delivery="streaming" type="application/x-mpegURL" >

Does it happen because m3u8 files aren't supported for ads or do I set mediafile tag in a worng way?

Best regards,

Hi, Vitaliy.

My name is Alex and I am one of the Support Engineers at JW Player. I will be more than happy to assist you with your questions.

You are correct when you say that HLS streams (M3U8 files) are not supported within ads. Please see our Ad Formats Reference for information on what formats of media are supported within ads.

Please let me know if you need any more help or have any other questions.

Thank you!
