Youtube Continues Attempts To Monetize

Recommended Posts

A post on TechCrunch today points out that YouTube is now rolling out a new form of advertising. YouTube users are probably accustomed to seeing ads overlaid in on the bottom of a partner videos, but now, YouTube is experimenting with allowing users to select (currently only on a small percentage of videos) the option of watching one “Promoted Video” (a video someone is paying for YouTube to promote) at the beginning of the clip, or choose to see a few different in-stream ads throughout the clip.

I personally would prefer to watch a pre-roll ad (at least assuming it's a longer video) then having to see ads midway through the video. What about you?
