The Chartboost SDK lets you enhance your players' in-game experience with engaging, high-quality video ads that support rich media. As a developer, you also have complete, transparent control over your video campaigns through your Chartboost dashboard.
Rewarded video is an ad type that rewards players (e.g. with in-game currency) after watching a video ad. Rewarded videos give publishers an extra revenue stream and give advertisers more high-quality, engaged users.
Videos must use the H.264 codec and be a minimum of 1280 x 720, with the ideal encoding to target the most devices being H.264, 30-60 FPS, M4V, 1280 x 720. Learn more about creative assets.
We encode videos for optimal quality and use proprietary technology to deliver extremely fast response times, reliability regardless of network connection, and high-resolution playback.
The average video is between 15 and 30 seconds, although we recommend keeping your video under 15 seconds. Chartboost video ads can last 30 seconds. Users are given the option to skip the video within 5 seconds of playback.
SDK integration of Chartboost Video is free! Video is then billed on a cost per thousand impressions (CPM) or cost per install (CPI) basis. Learn more about Chartboost pricing.
No, only CPM is allowed for advertising a paid game.
