Turn off ads for individual videos

We've simplified the choices for ad formats that are shown 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 monetisation settings.

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

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