Can I use video ads in "Smooth streaming" ? I have it all working with .wmv dummy videos but when I turn to my production ads in smooth streaming it silently fail (preroll videos in SSM makes player hanging out forever)

Smooth streaming ads are currently not supported due to a limitation with the Smooth Streaming SDK that only allows one smooth stream can be loaded at any given time, therefore for now you must use progressive (mp4 or wmv) ads.

fyi: the fact that this kind of ad failure causes the player to go into a non-interactive state is not expected. Thanks for reporting this! We'll make sure this is fixed in the next version.
