This article explains how you can connect THEOplayer with Prebid.js. Prebid.js is an open-source header bidding solution. On the client-side, you can request bids from multiple ad networks, take a winning bid and select its associated advertisement. You want to configure and play this selected advertisement in THEOplayer.

N/A was selected because Prebid.js is a separate library. You can connect Prebid.js with THEOplayer on any platform that supports both Prebid.js and THEOplayer.
Prebid.js allows you to request bids. This request will respond with bids through a callback function. In this callback function, you have to select a winning bid, extract the ad tag URL. You can configure this URL as THEOplayer's ad source.
The code example below is based on the documentation offered by Prebid.org at http://prebid.org/dev-docs/examples/instream-banner-mix.html.
The sample application at https://jsfiddle.net/thijsl/hjcegyuw/ is an example of implementing Prebid.js on top of the THEOplayer Web SDK.
The example above schedules advertisements as pre-rolls (or mid-rolls or post-rolls). You can also dynamically schedule advertisements with the Ads API, as explained in "How to set up VAST and VMAP".
Refer to http://prebid.org/prebid-mobile/pbm-api/android/code-integration-android.html. The same THEOplayer API to configure advertisements is available on the Android SDK.
Refer to http://prebid.org/prebid-mobile/pbm-api/ios/code-integration-ios.html. The same THEOplayer API to configure advertisements is available on the iOS SDK.
