theater ads

Mon Feb 03, 2020 4:11 am

i would love the ability to show custom ads every few mins(can be set by user)
stuff like "make sure to buy some popcorn and a drink"
and "dont throw away the 3d glasses "
"please help keep our theater clean"

i would pick a random ad poster every X mins
then after ad plays back to movie posters

i wasn't thinking video ads, just a poster ad. But video would be nice in the future.
It could be something like:
After X posters, insert poster from "ad directory", then continue on with the regular posters. You'd need to incorporate a "poster count" variable. The use something like:

Code: Select all

$ad_num = 0;
$directory = "/path/to/ad/dir/";
$ad_count = 0;
$files = glob($directory . "*");
if ($files){
    $ad_count = count($files);
}

if ($poster_counter % $ad_frequency) === 0 {
    <(serve ad # $ad_num) code goes here>
    <($ad_num = ($ad_num + 1) % $ad_count) code goes here>
} else {
    <(serve next regular poster) code goes here>;
    <($poster_counter = $poster_counter + 1) code goes here>
} 
I don't work with php, so this is just a rough outline.
