Advertisement "Plugs"

There are a number of ways to include advertisements within Rave. The most obvious method is to create an XML playlist and pepper ads throughout the playlist.

Another method is to create a script that dynamically"serves" ad files to Rave. This method will require knowledge of a server-side scripting environment such as PHP to accept a query string, then interpret the query and "feed" a media file to Rave.

Both of the methods mentioned above still lack an important aspect of running ads through Rave -- the ability to prevent the ad from being skipped or advanced. Usually, you'll want to "force" the end user to watch the ad.

Hence, we've developed a useful and flexible system for including advertisements within Rave. We call it "Plug Playlists". The Plug playlist system allows you to build a separate playlist that consists solely of advertisement media files. When a Plug Playlist item is playing within Rave, playback controls are disabled. What's more, you can designate how often items from the plug Playlist are played.
