HTLM5 Banner

HTML5 banner looks like a regular banner, but has a number of significant differences.

The HTML file contains the source links for videos, graphics, and images used in the banner ad. It also includes the HTML code that makes the animation work, and any responsive features of the ad to ensure it adapts to different browsers and device display sizes.

Rotation behavior is no different from any other type of banner and can be considered as iFrame with only one difference - the way the iFrame URL is stored.

The HTML5 banner type is not required in the URL link as in the iFrame. All the target links are stored in the banner content and the click tracking is the same as for iFrame.
