Multiple ad breaks in long videos

Mid-roll ads is a great way of generating extra revenue in your videos. If your video is 10 minutes or longer you may want to include ad breaks in them.

If you have a lot of long-form content that doesn’t have mid-roll ads set, and are interested in monetizing them, we recommend enabling auto mid-rolls.

Auto mid-roll breaks is a tool that suggests natural ad mid-roll breaks in long form content.  Break times are algorithmically determined based on your video’s audio and visual cues.

Auto midrolls provide the following benefits:

  • Potential for Increased Revenue: If you haven’t been able to set manual mid-rolls on your content in the past, you will be able to start monetizing by enabling auto-midrolls with just a few simple clicks.

  • Improved Creator Usability: Easy to accept auto generated breaks with the click of a few buttons.  You can also easily edit the breaks as necessary. You no longer need to solely depend on entering manually mid-rolls which can be a time consuming and tedious process.

  • High quality mid-rolls breaks: YouTube has spent over a year to ensure that the algorithm tries to find natural ad breaks in the content which are not disruptive to the user experience.  

  • Balances out Watchtime and Revenue: By providing as many high-quality mid-rolls as possible breaks which promote a positive user experience, auto mid-rolls end up better balancing out watchtime and revenue so that users stay engaged and you earn more money.
