YouTube Offers AdSense Monetized Video Players

image 2007 was supposed to be the year of mobile content, but it’s shaping-up to be the year of the online video.

YouTube is rolling out a new AdSense enabled video player that can be embedded into any web site. After a slow start, Google’s making up for lost time with this second YouTube announcement in six weeks.

Just like the existing customized YouTube players, you can select which channels to show or let Google target the videos based on your site’s content. The ads appear to run at the top of the YouTube player, keeping them in view but not annoyingly so.

Not everyone will see the new AdSense options. Here’s the YouTube page for the custom player–if you’re one of the lucky ones, you’ll see the screen below:

    Some people are going to make a lot of money off this. I wonder what the original authors and copyright holders think of that. ;)

    Jeremy, I’m sure they’ll be very happy to know someone else is profiting off their work.

    This does seem like the next logical step for both YouTube and AdSense and I imagine some will do well with it and most won’t.

    They could just stop uploading their videos to YouTube. Or start embedding their own ad overlays. ;-)

    WOW! That’ll definitely push individual site owners to re-broadcast videos that other people have made. Does this mean that you split the profits with YOuTube?

  • http://www.marketingpilgrim.com Andy Beal

    @ScottUA – It will work much the same way as AdSense – so yes a profit split if you will.

    I’ve got the same advertisement on my blog. Offering “free quality content” almost sounds like a bribe if you ask me. I’ve heard the same thing time time again and my adsense ads STILL are not relevant to my site! LMAO….what will they come up with next….free candy for a year to all little children who will post adsense on their myspace page?

  • http://www.undergroundattraction.com ScottUA

    Cool…that’ll be great!

    Can someone really tell me, do you think that the opportunity to make money from this form of adsence is going to generate some really money/cash for the average Joe?
