1. Accepted forms of Rich media: Flash* (.swf) format.

*Flash clickTag Variable Instructions: For Flash creative to work properly in WIStv.com's ad serving system, clients must insert the clickTag variable into the .fla file so that performance can be properly tracked. More information about clickTag can be found on Adobe's website: http://www.adobe.com/resources/richmedia/tracking/designers_guide/ and http://www.adobe.com/devnet/flash/articles/flash8_bestpractices_10.html

Example code:

on (release) {
if (clickTAG.substr(0,5) == "http:") { getURL(_level0.clickTAG, "_blank");

2. HTML calls to remotely hosted (3rd party) creative can be accommodated on WIStv.com for all sizes listed in the table above.

For streaming video, we prefer Beta SP, .wmv, .asf or .avi files.
