Are you using them to promote your game or to display ads?

We have used adcolony and love it. eCPMs and fill are both great!

Wish you could expert their reports as CSVs, but other than that I have no complaints.

How do they work?

Do you get paid if they pay the video?, does the video play by itself?
How much do you earn per video playback? or does the user have to click through for you to earn any money?

Do video's work per playback/impression?

To be honest i dont want my users having to watch a video if im not going to get paid at-least three times as much as a standard full screen interstitial ad (maybe 0.5c per playback)

I am not sure about add colony, but with most video ads networks you are paid on completed views. I think that generally the eCPM for video ads is between $5-$25.

I integrated it in an update that is now in "waiting for review" status. I will back with some numbers next week.

I work with AdColony's Support team and saw your questions. Thank you for your interest in our product.

We pay based on completed video views. For more detailed information on monetization, our Publishing team is your best resource. You can contact them directly at publishers@adcolony.com.

Once you've integrated our SDK into your app, you choose your placements. You can have the videos start automatically after a user reaches a certain level for example (interstitial video placements). We also offer our V4VC option (Videos-For-Virtual-Currency) where you can reward users with virtual currency in exchange for watching video ads. With V4VC, the user will trigger the play of the video by clicking a button in your app.

This is a very basic description of what we do. If you have further technical questions, please reach out to me at support@adcolony.com.
