Preview a video creative on your site

You can preview a video creative on your site to test the creative before it's live.

  1. Sign in to Google Ad Manager.

  2. Click Delivery and then Line items.
  3. Click the name of the line item you'd like to preview. Use filters to find your line item.
  4. Click Creative sets, then click the creative set you want to preview.
  5. Click On site in the "Preview" tab of the creative set. Ad Manager will attempt to display the video below.
  6. Enter the site URL of the page containing the video player capable of showing the ad.
  7. Click Open preview.

Third-party tracking URLs

  • Previews include your third-party tracking URLs, which can cause an increased count in the URLs you have specified.

Video ad rules

  • If the page for which you are requesting the preview contains a video ad rule, our systems simulate the terms of the ad rules to mimic the live ad serving experience.

Not supported

  • On-site preview does not work for creatives with size overrides. The size in the tag must match the size of the preview creative.
  • Creative preview does not currently support native video or Dynamic Ad Insertion implementations.
