Users of ExoPlayer, an extensible, open-source media player for Android, can now easily integrate with the IMA SDK using the new ExoPlayer IMA extension. The IMA extension, released alongside ExoPlayer 2.5, wraps the IMA SDK for Android and provides seamless ad playback.

The extension ensures that ads are integrated into ExoPlayer's video timeline, and UI components are ad-aware. It also reduces buffering by eliminating the need to swap out and rebuffer the video player's source when transitioning between ads and content.

You can find more details on the extension in ExoPlayer's blog post on Medium, and find the extension on GitHub. If you have any questions or issues, please file them on ExoPlayer's issue tracker.
