Bulk Upload Hosted Native Video Creatives

You can upload batches of hosted native video assets, and attach them to individual creatives.

You’ll need to prepare an information file with details about your creatives (format: CSV or TXT), and a .zip file with your images (zipped images in format: JPEG, JPG, PNG, GIF, SWF or ZIP) and videos (zipped videos in format: MOV, AVI, ASF, OGG, WEBM, FLV, MP4 and WMV).

Before you begin, make sure you have read the getting started information, and prepared the needed creative assets. Check out Get Started with Creative Bulk Uploads.
