Turn off ads for individual videos

We’ve simplified the choices for ad formats that show before or after your video to improve creator revenue. We’ve removed the individual ad choices for pre-roll, post-roll, skippable, and non-skippable ads. Now, when you turn on ads for new long-form videos, we show your viewers pre-roll, post-roll, skippable, or non-skippable ads when appropriate. This change makes the recommended best practice to turn on all ad formats, the standard for everyone. Your choices for mid-roll ads haven’t changed. We’ve also retained your ad choices for existing long-form videos, unless you change the monetization settings.

You can turn off monetization for any videos you've already uploaded.

  1. Go to YouTube Studio.
  2. In the left menu, select Content.
  3. Next to the relevant video, click Monetization .
  4. Click Off in the monetization drop-down menu.
  5. Click Save.
