Can I use images from a my server via external XML file for Flash Ads on the Google Display Network?

I have many of the same ads that use the different images, and instead of publising and uploading each version of the SWF, I was wondering can I upload the images that I want to use to my FTP server and then have the SWF look to a XML file to pull in the images and other text content?

Hi DFarm,

 

Thanks for your question. 

 

This is not something that is available in AdWords at the moment. However it may be possible by using the AdWords API. You can find more information on the AdWords API here

 

Thanks

Hi EoinM,

Do you have more info on this? I am also looking int possiblities to connect an Adwords Flash banner to an external XML.

I succeed in connecting a Flash to an external GIF file, but a Flash connected to an external XML file cannot be uploaded in Google Adwords.

Many thanks in advance for your reply!

best, Jan
