I am trying to run video in-display ads on YouTube. As per the document provided by Google in-display ad will be shown on the right side and user will have to click the ad to view the in-display ad. 

 

Now my question is, I am trying to run in-display ads and the adwords reporting feature does not show any clicks.

See how in-display ads are shown in YouTube. The box highlighted in red are in-display ads. So to view the ad the user will have to click the ad. So why clicks are not getting recorded in the above screenshot.

Hey Johny, how are things?

Clicks on video campaigns are only part of In-Stream Trueview Ads because you can link the user to a website.

Other formats don't have this feature, making all of them show ZERO clicks always. They will only count views.

You can check this information over the article below under "Technical Requirements"

Hope this helps.
