Hi guitarchildren,


I hope you have created your video ads following the specification provided by Adwords. Read this article for details.


About the approval status, you need to wait until the review is complete from Google's side. Video ads are sensitive and with a fact that they are eligible for Google Display Network along with You Tube network, review is mandatory from Google's end.


Just a thought!
