B4A Library MoPub Ad Server Library (Updated to v4.6.1 , 29 May 2016) - 20+ ad networks (AdMob , etc.)

Library (Updated to v4.6.1 , 29 May 2016)
MoPub Official Website
Google Play Policies
MoPub is the world largest mobile ad server (mediation platform) and RTB exchange (MoPub marketplace). Now it belongs to Twitter. It is the main competitor to AdMob , but MoPub primary focus is mediation of ads. The following ad networks work just right out of the box:
MoPubLibVer.png

All networks are tested and use official java code of these networks.
AdColony can use only interstitial or rewarded video, if you will use both in your project - it will not work.
Tapjoy - please test, integration is rather complicated, so for now I didn't test it myself, but normally it should work.
Native ads are not supported for now.
Note: I advise you to use logcat logs in B4A (without filter checked) or this standalone utility to see all error codes and a lot of additional info about loading your ads.

Please vote for ad network you want to see in MoPub Library

Hello,
I've spent hours trying to make Vungle work.

I have a Custom Native Full Screen Ad on MoPub that supposedly links to my Vungle, and the way I set it up was:
  • Leaving Custom Event empty (as I did not see anything on the PDF guide on this)
  • Put "com.mopub.mobileads.VungleInterstitial" on Custom Event Class box
  • And, put "com.myapppackagename" on Custom Event Class Data box (I have also tried using the Reporting API ID instead of the App ID)
Everything in MoPub.xml and my manifest file have been set up according to what's in the guide PDF, including adding a write to external storage permission to the manifest.

I have the following in Activity_Create:
B4X:
ads.InitializeMopub_Banner("banner","")
ads.InitializeMopub_Interstitial("interstitial","xxxx")  ' where xxxx is my interstitial ID from MoPub
ads.PreloadMopub_Interstitial

and this:
B4X:
Sub interstitial_mopub_interstitial_loaded
    LogColor("Interstitial Loaded",Colors.Blue)
End Sub
Never gets called.

No error messages or anything in logs.

What am I missing or doing wrong here?

Hi Base64
Please use guide to setup Vungle (Page 13)
All networks are tested manually by me.

Hello,
Thank you for the quick response!
I followed through that part of the guide when setting up my MoPub with Vungle, but it still doesn't work.
The sub interstitial_mopub_interstitial_loaded never gets called (and yes, I called PreloadMopub_Interstitial).

What else I could be missing or doing wrong?

Disable filter check in LogCat logs. Also make shure that Vungle is first network for your ad and you can disable Marketplace for testing purposes. In LogCat without filter checked you will see all info about loading ads.

So, it appears that I get this in the log:

The meta-data tag in your app's AndroidManifest.xml does not have the right value. Expected 5077000 but found 5089000. You must have the following declaration within the <application> element: <meta-data android:name="com.google.android.gms.version" android:value="@integer/google_play_services_version" />

although I already have that declaration in my manifest file (inside AddApplicationText(...)).

Which causes an IllegalStateException (the following is the next line in the log):
java.lang.IllegalStateException: The meta-data tag in your app's AndroidManifest.xml does not have the right value. Expected 5077000 but found 5089000.

How do I fix this?

I also get:
Unable to obtain AdvertisingIdClient.getAdvertisingIdInfo()
Is this a problem as well or it doesn't matter?


And here's the contents of my manifest file:

It seems that Google Play Services are not properly integrated into application so Vungle can't obtain advertising ID. In MoPub Library I had 18 version of Goole Play Services (resource and jar). In your case it seems that you have updated your Google Play Services to 19 version but my Google Play Services jar is 18 version so it is not the same. Copy jar from here: YOUR_PATH_TO_ANDROID_SDK\extras\google\google_play_services\libproject\google-play-services_lib\libs to your B4A additional libraries folder . It must work.

John

Hi, I’m having a lot of trouble getting Interstitial Ads working.

I get -

java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: android.support.v4.content.LocalBroadcastManager
at com.mopub.mobileads.EventForwardingBroadcastReceiver.register(EventForwardingBroadcastReceiver.java:113)

I suspect it is due to the Google Play Services which is currently at version 22. I use Google Maps APi v2.0, which uses Google play, so I am confident that this is entered correctly. I have also copied it into my B4A additional libraries folder (as per previous entry).

Any help appreciated,
Thanks

Yeah - I think you need to use an earlier version of Google Play Services. Maybe try 18? I think I'm using 14, but that's because I'm using an old Play Services wrapper.

Hi MaxApps
Google Play Services are used to pass Google Advertising ID that is using instead old Android ID.
Since August 1, 2014 all apps must use new Google Advertising ID, so I think just any ad network is using it (MoPub also, but it must depend on network you are using through MoPub), there are some networks that don't use it.
Also for more info look here.
Anyway I don't see a problem using Google Play Services even though you have been banned by Google because it is not associated with your account, it is anonymous user's identifier, who uses your application.

John

Hi Everyone,

I get Banner Failed and also Interstitial Failed when tapping the Show Banner and Preload Interstitial buttons from the sample test app.

I also registered with mopub in the US and tried the same thing with the ad unit id in admob_test and admob_banner and still got the same error message.

Here is the coding I used:

B4X:
#Region  Project Attributes
    #ApplicationLabel: MoPub TEST
    #VersionCode: 1
    #VersionName: 1.0
    'SupportedOrientations possible values: unspecified, landscape or portrait.

    LogLabel.Text = "Interstitial Loaded"

Sub interstitial_mopub_interstitial_shown

What am I missing?
