What is rewarded video?

Rewarded video is an ad type that rewards players (e.g. with in-game currency) after watching a video ad. Rewarded videos give publishers an extra revenue stream and give advertisers more high-quality, engaged users.


What video encoding format and dimensions are required?

Videos must use the H.264 codec and be a minimum of 1280 x 720, with the ideal encoding to target the most devices being H.264, 30-60 FPS, M4V, 1280 x 720. Learn more about creative assets ▶


What quality are the video ads?

We encode videos for optimal quality and use proprietary technology to deliver extremely fast response times, reliability regardless of network connection, and high-resolution playback.


How long should the video ads be?

The average video is between 15 and 30 seconds, although we recommend keeping your video under 15 seconds. Chartboost video ads can last 30 seconds. Users are given the option to skip the video within 5 seconds of playback.


How do I turn off the pre-roll and post-roll messages on a rewarded video ad?
  • Select an app and go to App Settings > Rewarded Video.
  • Go to Advanced Settings.
  • Uncheck Show Pre-Roll Confirmation and Show Post-Roll Confirmation.


How much do Chartboost Video ads cost?

SDK integration of Chartboost Video is free! Video is then billed on a cost per completed video (CPCV) or cost per install (CPI) basis. Learn more about Chartboost pricing ▶


Can I advertise my paid game with a CPI video ad?
