Google Interactive Media Ads

VAST Inspector

The Video Ad Serving Template (VAST) provides a standard XML-based ad response for in-stream video for on-demand video players where the ad response is parsed prior to play. Details on VAST can be found on the Interactive Advertising Bureau VAST guideline.

This page verifies VAST 2.0 compliance in two ways:

  1. Verifies whether your video player is VAST compliant by testing our default VAST tags in your player.
  2. Verifies whether your video ad response is VAST compliant by making ad calls using the sample player below.

1. Verify whether your video PLAYER is VAST compliant

To check whether your video player is VAST compliant, use the ad tags below. These are generated to verify that your player displays the ads correctly and calls all the appropriate tracking URLs.

VAST 2.0 inline ad with companions:;dcadv=1379578;sz=0x0;ord=79879;dcmt=text/xml

VAST wrapper 2.0 pointing to VAST 2.0:;kw=nexuswrapper;sz=300x250;ord=4422567;dcmt=text/html

2. Verify whether your video AD RESPONSE is VAST compliant

To check whether your video ad response is VAST compliant, paste your VAST ad tag or VAST ad response into the text field below and then click the "Display Ad" button. Our video player will verify and display the VAST ad response, and also ping the tracking URLs.
