The Streaming Mrec is a rich media ad execution which allows you to present TV and video commercials in a standard in-page banner.


Streaming Mrec can either be built by ACM following the below specifications or by a third party, supplied to us via 3rd party re-direct tag.

For either execution the initial video may start to play automatically however, the sound must be muted by default. If the video plays on click initiation it is accepted and recommended to play / un-mute audio simultaneously. Please note, the ACM built Streaming Mrec has a mute icon overlayed on top of the video by default, which is removed on user initiation.

Product Rules

  • Audio must be user initiated.
  • Video Controls must always be present (play, pause & mute)
