Hi,

It looks Admob released it's own Reward Video.  Anyone tried that?  How's the fillrate?  Did I get money on click or on install?

On the other hand, anyone uses Appodeal? is it good or not?

Thank you for your feedback.

I've been using them for about a month on a very small new game of mine.

Those are my stats, but it's a very small number of downloads for this game, so they might not be typical of most games. Honestly I don't know if they pay for clicks, completed views, or downloads. I'm showing the ad in true rewarded style, on game over I present a prompt to the player to watch a video for a continue. It's up to them if they want to watch it or not.

The fillrate of ~20% is really low, while my interstitial ususally get ~80% fillrate.  Maybe I should consider to use Admob rewarded video mediation with vungle plus chartboost, although the integration process is more difficult.  Thank you XdebugX.  Good luck for your games.

That's not the fill rate that is 20%, that's the show rate. I was caching the videos so that they would be ready to show instantly, if the person chose to watch a video for a continue. So I requested the video but only showed 20% of the video ads they sent me. It's common for you to request an ad and not show it when you are pre-caching for instant showing. Often people will not choose to watch the video for a continue, then if they close the app that video doesn't get shown, leading to 20% show rate. I checked stats and fill rate was about 35%.

Here is a video on Admob Rewarded ads by some of the Admob team:



As the video says you can use rewarded videos for apps not just games. I put rewarded videos into one of my more popular apps and here are the stats for it:

As you can see they tend to pay for clicks but I'm still not sure they pay for compeleted videos. On almost every day that I had completed videos but 0 clicks, I had 0 revenue. Except a few which were like $0.01 revenue, so maybe they pay for completed, just a very small amount?

If you are interested I wrote about my experience with Appodeal - https://www.howtomakemobilegames.com/post/appodeal-anyone-8480713?pid=1295475399

I don't use them anymore. Only Admob and Chartboost directly.
