  • Currently, we are supporting Ads for Pre-roll, Mid-roll, and Post-roll for SpotX and Pre-Roll, Mid-Roll for DoubleClick on web browsers only.

That means you can configure an Ad in a specific content in Pre-Roll, Mid-Roll, and Post-Roll that will play in the content at the beginning, middle (the time you set for Mid-Roll), and end of the content. However, you cannot add 3 different Ads in Pre-Roll, Mid-Roll, and Post-Roll for specific content.
