Creative suggestion

  • Title Safe Zone - see image
  • End Frame
  • After the video has completed playback the video player will hold the last frame of the video so it is recommend that video content is created with this in mind. The In-Article player clicks through in this state therefore it’s a great opportunity to include a strong call to action as part of the video’s end frame. The desired end frame should last at least 0.5sec
  • Video Length
  • 30 secs to 1 minute recommended
