Video ads on YouTube were formerly known as in-stream video ads.
Note that this page refers to video ads bought on a reservation basis. For video ads bought through auction, please see the TrueView in-stream ad page. These can be created directly in the Adwords UI; you can also create non-skippable 15-second or 20-second video ads through AdWords.
