Creating video ads with out skip option

Hi there..  I have a video campaign running with 2 videos of 20 second each. I used the 20 second videos since i want them unskippable. But what i see in my report is the view through rate is almost same as the longer videos. 

 What i want to ask is should i have to apply any extra settings to make my ads unskippable?   If my ads are really running as unskipable ones, what actually the percentage viewed, and lower view rate means?

As far as I know, the non-skippable ads are available only by using the Ad Gallery;

Dear Jitin ,

You can create non-skippable, 15- or 20-second Ads standard InStream ads through AdWords.

Also Please note - A view of a skippable ad will increment the YouTube view count when the ad has been watched completely. Non-skippable ads do not help you in increment the view count.

@Shweta
These are general specs. Have you tried creating a non skippable ads without using the ad-gallery?

I wrote : You can create non-skippable, 15- or 20-second Ads standard InStream ads through AdWords - Here by Adwords i meant Adwords Display Ad Builder itself , I guess there is confusion here
