Embedding Ask A Ninja Blades of Glory

While exploring the video features of Castfire I saw that they allow you to modify the post roll of any ads you already have posted. So for example in this brilliant clip where the Ninja interviews Will Ferrell and Jon Heder, from the movie Blades of Glory, the postroll ad is for the new Ask A Ninja community site.

    Steve, you are correct that publishing on Castfire allows you to update the postroll for any video. However, it doesn't end at just the postroll! The content is templated to allow you to control each segment. In the video you have embeded, there are six segments: musical intro, content 1, advertisement, credits, content 2, social network promotion. Any of those segments can be changed (or set for automatic rotation) at any time. For instance, segments 1 & 3 are currently for Doritos - they have been for CBS, and others in the past. The template affects both the flash version as well as quicktime for rss distribution.

  2. Thanks Brian. That's very powerful.
