It could be that you are bidding too low, or your targeting methods are too narrow.
$100 - is it a daily budget or monthly?

If the status is "not serving" , the video has not been reviewed yet. Wait for a couple of hours.

I don't think it is very clear for you, otherwise you wouldn't be asking Smiley Happy

 

The Video ads have two components , the text part and the video part.

Approval is done in a sequence for both components.

 

https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/1722120?rd=1

 

Before review:

  • ................
  • Under review -- Ad is still being reviewed and can't show until it's been approved.
  • Not yet serving (video ads) -- A video ad is not yet approved to appear on YouTube but is under review.

After review - ads can run:

  • Approved -- Ad complies with our policies, so it's allowed to show for all audiences.
  • .....................
  • Serving (video ads) -- A video ad is approved to appear on YouTube.

 

-------------

For the Video ads you have always 2 statuses:

1) For the video part there is first (before review) "not yet serving" and then (after review) says "serving"

2) For the text part for the video ads there is first (before review) the status "Under review" and then "Approved"

 

The fact that you see the following combination of statuses "Not yet serving" and "Approved" means that the video part was not reviewed. It is weekend, maybe it is scheduled to be manually reviewed during business hours on monday.

 

Also I noticed an amusing wording in the info bubble of the video ad status about ",or in other states." :

If there is a technical issue with the video format (resulting in "ad not serving yet")  it should say: "issue with ad..."
What targeting method are you using?
