On every Billboard Details page, the types of supported content are listed. For example: one billboard might only support image content, while another might support images and videos.
One City currently supports the following file formats:
Image Content – .jpg, .png, .gif
Video Content – .flv, .mov, .mpg, .mpeg, .mp4, .wmv

The outdoor industry practices self-regulation. The industry’s code includes a buffer zone around schools, places of worship, and other areas where children gather (a voluntary restraint on promoting products illegal for sale to minors). Further, the industry’s code features an anti-obscenity clause, and respects the right to refuse advertising.
In addition to these practices that prohibit certain types of billboard content, individual billboard owners have the right to enforce additional restrictions on the types of permissible content. For example: a board owner may choose not to allow content that includes liquor, cigarettes or political messages.
