Hi Ed,

 

Video ads tend to take a few days to review.  Especially on weekends, as Zeev notes.  Sometime a backlog builds up over the weekend and it can take them a few days to clear it out at the start of the week.  We do have some reviewers working 24/7, but I believe most of the people trained on video ad reviews work regular business hours.

 

I don't know what the "stream option" is (sorry; not an expert on display and video ads) but any video ad we havent seen before is going to need review by a human, and I don't think changing any options is going to make a difference.

 

If your ad hasn't been approved after 3 business days, please contact AdWords support and as them to expedite the review.  You could also try that even before 3 days, but I don't know if they will be able to help.  Still, it's probably worth a try.
