We’r’e still experiencing this issue with our VAST ads on mobile, and desktop devices. We’re unable to differentiate our VAST ads from the regular content that plays after the ads. The VAST ads doesn’t show an advertisers link or count down timer signifying that its an ad. Viewers get confused thinking that it’s the actual content. Skippable ads at least show the ‘Skip Ad’ option but non-skippable ads shows nothing.
The vast ads while playing don’t show advertisment text (Learn More or Click here) or ad duration timer signifying when the ad is going to end.
On tablets (Ipad) we do see advertisement text (Learn More and Ad Duration timer) but thats the only device we’re able to see this.
Please see attached images for better understanding to the issue. The link provided below is for you to replicate issue. Please refresh video player to see both Non-skippable and Skippable ads alternate.
