The Pre-Roll Advertisement section is where you can add videos or photos to your event that will be displayed before the athlete can view their race video. This is useful for branding and marketing for the event. Please note that you may only upload one Pre-Roll advertisement video or image for your Event. Pre-Roll Advertisement videos do not need to be uploaded via the Media Manager, but are uploaded directly from the Media tab.
Please note that we no longer support FLV file uploads. Please ensure that all video uploads are in .MP4 format.
