    @sports-advan The content is delivered via PERFORM’s ePlayer, and generally costs them a lot of money to produce or purchase and therefore the only way they can provide it is with advertising so it can’t be avoided. This is similar to how some YouTube videos start with a pre-roll ad depending on the content. Hope that makes sense!

    Thanks Brian, yes it does make sense, if we were talking about sense. My issue is that the ads play so long and they begin before each video which really takes away the meaning for the videos entirely. My site is featuring NFL training and I added the plug in to enhance my site. There’s a clickable icon in the bottom right corner of the player that allows you to skip to the video, but it doesn’t engage till after the entire ad is finished. Therefore, instead of enhancing the site with good video content, a would be customer would opt out of watching because the ad is too long and they would become uninterested.

    So clearly, the viewer should be able to click and continue to the video before the entire ad plays out. Otherwise, this option is absolutely useless and I lose out on the whole idea of site enhancement.

    @sports-advan Unfortunately what we have access to is the free ePlayer content only, which sometimes contains pre-roll video ads. PERFORM offers a service called Omnisport which is licensable to larger publishers for a significant fee. I’m not 100% sure if they have the NFL content you want, but I could try getting in touch with them.
