Video Advertisement can be enabled in two steps: configuring the video at Control Center and whitelisting the necessary domains on the router.

  1. Configure the video at Control Center

Under Manage / Location / Location Name / Modify HotSpot Data and Settings select Video Advertisment & Splash Page Lock

Tick "video advertisement enabled". Make sure that you are using Responsive Skin. This can be checked at at "Splash Page Settings" in this same "Modify Hotspot Data and Settings" menu.

Select your video and copy the video code.

This means that if your favourite video's URL is this, paste the last segment of it there. This is the one after "watch?v=" so in our case: "INS32DRc01c".

Finally, set the number of seconds after which video can be skipped.
