Please see notes from my developer below regarding a companion fix.
I'm seeing some strange behavior when trying to load an ad tag with
two companions, one a 300x250 and the other a 728x90. My console log
which does a document.write(). I'm not sure if the values seen in the
VAST response in the console log conform to VAST standards. I have the
OVA html5 configuration setting to true (does this really have to be
hard-coded in advance, or is there no way to dynamically switch to
html5-based ad-loading based on the VAST response?).
What is odd is that:
- If I configure OVA to use one companion or the other, it does so
successfully. So it's not a simple issue of the naming of the divs,
- If I configure OVA to use both companions, it puts the HTML for
both companion ads in the 720x90 div. It doesn't matter if I change
the order in which I specify the companions in the OVA config, it
always ends up putting both ads in the 720x90 div, and the other ends
- This is really odd, but I discovered that adding an empty
window.alert(""); to the last line of the "jQuery.fn.writeElement"
function definition at the end of ova-jquery.js fixes the problem
somehow. I see two alerts, one as each companion is populated. After
clearing the alerts both companions are shown properly, in their
correct divs. However the 720x90 companion acts as if I had the
companion "restore" config boolean set to true (it isn't removed at
the end of the video ad). The smaller companion disappears following
the ad play, as it should.
All of this behavior occurs in Chrome 19 and Firefox 13.
