There is an option called “VAST Tag” in the “Tracking Type” drop down menu when creating a placement. Use this tracking type to create a VAST tag to host and serve video ads. A VAST Tag placement can only contain video ads. There are two options when creating a video ad within the VAST tag placement: VAST video tag or Custom XML tag. Use the VAST video tag when hosting and serving your own video files. Use the Custom XML tag when serving a third party VAST tag.

On the “Placement Details” screen of a VAST Tag Placement, there is a reporting button called “Video.” It opens the ‘Video Statistics’ breakdown screen where you can view the stats of all the VAST events that were sent back to AVID.
