Episode fourteen of The Mobile Ads Garage is live on YouTube! If you haven't seen it before, The Mobile Ads Garage is a video tutorial series that covers how to use the Mobile Ads SDK to display ads from AdMob and DoubleClick for Publishers. Each episode covers one aspect of the SDK, breaks down the feature, and shows screencasts of real implementations on both Android and iOS – all in a friendly format.
This video is a special one for two reasons. Not only is it the first to feature AdMob's open source plugin for Unity, but it's also the Garage debut of AdMob's own rewarded video ads! Previously, publishers who wanted to use the Mobile Ads SDK to integrate rewarded video ads had to use mediation to source ads from other networks. Now, however, AdMob has its own rewarded demand, which means you can take advantage of the format with no mediation required.
In this episode, you'll see screencasts and a breakdown of how to request and show rewarded video ads with the AdMob Unity plugin. Unity is one of the most popular tools for game development, and allows publishers to write engines once in C#, then build for multiple platforms (including Android and iOS). With the AdMob plugin, apps can load and display ads from AdMob using a single, cross-platform C# interface.
