To monetize YouTube videos with your custom monetization options set either in your player or on a video level please follow these steps:
- Login into Brid CMS.
- Click on the settings icon under the site for which you wish to enable custom YouTube monetization.
- Select the MONETIZATION tab.
- Check the INTRO VIDEO URL checkbox.
- If you wish, you can enter a URL to a custom intro video in the input field below or leave it empty. If you leave it empty, we will provide a default intro video for you.
Please bear in mind that this input field only accepts a direct URL to a valid .mp4 video file.
- Click SAVE.
Keep in mind that this feature supports pre roll only. Mid roll, post roll and overlays are not supported.
This intro video will show before your YouTube video and act as a buffer between the YouTube video and your pre roll. Your ad tag will get called before the intro video and display your ad.
If you would want us to create a custom intro video for you, please send us a request through a ticket.
