Spec for supplying video to go on gradireland.com

We currently support the following video players:

  • YouTube
  • Vimeo
  • Blip.tv
  • Viddler
  • Kickstart

Note: We don’t accept videos from players other than those on the list above. This is because we require iframe html tags for the video to work within our responsive design and we don’t support javascript embed code.

Please copy the embed code from the video player and send to us. Max-width: 768px

In the event that you are unable to supply embed code from one of the above list of players, we are happy to host your video on one of our own YouTube channels.

Other information

  1. We always need a clickthrough URL to go with a banner, button or skyscraper, either linking internally to gradireland.com or linking externally.
  2. If using audio please include volume/mute control.
  3. We can host creative ourself or carry tags from all third-party systems such as DoubleClick, Eyeblaster, etc.
  4. If supplying creative for a searchtriggered banner, skyscraper or button, remember to include details of the sector, region, and/or keyword to be used.

Notes on using HTML5

  1. We only except one HTML5 file
  2. All files that are referenced in the HTML5 document should be self-hosted.
  3. Use protocol relative URLs (e.g. //example.com/script.js instead of http://example.com/script.js)
  4. We always need a clickthrough URL to go with your display advertising either linking internally to your content on targetcareers.co.uk or linking externally.
  5. If using audio please include volume/mute control – default to off.
  6. We can host your creative or carry tags from all third-party systems such as DoubleClick, Eyeblaster, etc

Note on using Flash

When Flash is used for an ad, the clickthrough should not be coded into the ad. Instead, the following code should be used as a click:

ActionScript 3.0 (flash 10 or higher)

MyClickTagButton.addEventListener(
MouseEvent.CLICK,
function():void {
if (root.loaderInfo.parameters.clickTAG.substr(0,5) == "http:")
{ navigateToURL( new URLRequest(root.loaderInfo.parameters.clickTAG), "_blank" ); }

}
);

ActionScript 2.0 (flash 8 or 9)

on (release)
{ getURL(clickTAG,"_blank"); }

This will mean that clicks can be counted by our adserver, and also that the clickthrough URL can be altered without needing to change the Flash file.

Please note that Flash leaderboards and MPUs will not display on the tablet version of our sites when they are viewed on iOS devices (iPad and iPad mini)

If you are supplying your banner in Flash, please be aware that as of 1 September 2015, Chrome will pause Flash animations by default to improve performance for users.
