Discover the Ultimate Video Solution: Universal Player

Modified on: Wed, 20 Dec, 2023

What is the Universal Player and Why You Should Keep it Enabled? 

The Universal Player can seamlessly place videos in all your articles at once. Our technology intelligently identifies the best location on each page to insert engaging videos for your users. You have the option to use your videos or let our technology select high-quality video content for you!

How Can You Turn the Universal Player On?

Option 1: 

Ezoic Ads tab > Ad Types > Universal Floating Video Player > On


Here you will have the power to select which device type you want the Player to display on. 

More importantly, the ability to choose which form of video ads is served on your site.

Instream and Outstream (most recommended) or Outstream only. Put another way $$$$$ or $.

Option 2:

In the bottom right corner of the screenshot above, you will see Humix Advanced Setting. By clicking this button you will be directed to the Site tab of your Humix dashboard under Monetization. 


This video solution empowers you to maximize revenue from multiple sources concurrently. It will serve a floating outstream video ad until your users either engage with the in-content video or continue scrolling past it. If a user doesn’t engage with your in-content video, a new instream video will elegantly transition to a floating bottom corner position and play automatically. Notably, even if a user doesn't reach the in-content video, you'll earn revenue from the floating outstream video ad.

Floating Outstream Video:
This is a 'sticky' video ad that remains anchored in the bottom corner of your screen. What sets floating outstream units apart is that they exclusively feature video advertisements without any video content separate from the ad. 


Instream Video:
In contrast, an Instream video is implemented (usually embedded) within your article and monetized through video ads. If you use your own video content within your articles, these are classified as instream videos.


For publishers who haven't created their own video content, the Universal Player offers a seamless solution. We provide and implement engaging videos into your content, eliminating the need for any additional effort. Simply activate the Universal Player, and it will take care of the rest!

If you’re interested in displaying videos made by other content creators or utilizing AI technology to match relevant videos to your content, explore Humix for your website.

Please note if you want total control of which videos and where they appear through the Universal Player, please proceed with the Humix option. 

In terms of location, under Advanced Settings you will see Viewport options. These will always be set to the 2nd Viewport as it's the most recommended and will earn you the most money. 

If you decide to change the location, please confirm the data first. Your site should have data displayed.
