As of July 5, 2017 the Flash SDK is deprecated. We recommend using the HTML5 SDK for inline ads with web video content.

Upgrading from IMA Flash SDK version 2

To upgrade to version 3 of the Google IMA Flash SDK (if you have already integrated version 2 into your video player), download and import version 3 into your development environment using either the SDK Library SWC or MXP file. Package names can be used to easily distinguish version 2 classes from their version 3 equivalents. For example:

  • Version 2: com.google.ads.instream.api
  • Version 3: com.google.ads.ima.api

Then, review the important changes in version 3 in the Changes to the AdsLoader and AdsRequest and Changes to the AdsManager sections below.

Note: If you will be using ads from AdSense or Ad Exchange, refer to these parameter descriptions to create IMA SDK v3-compliant ad tags for your ad requests.
