I want to make an ad campaign on YouTube but Adwords doesn't let me. Help

Hi everyone

 
So I have a music promo channel.
I promote music. I would like to invest in my channel by doing a YouTube Ad campaign (a promovid which you'll see before you watch a video)
 
I went through this link: https://www.youtube.com/yt/advertise/
Clicked on 'Get Started' and filled everything in like I wished.
At step 2 it asked if I already had a google account and since I have a YouTube channel, yes I do have a google account.
I click on Yes and it asks me to sign in. I sign in and I get redirected to a page in Google Adwords where it asks me to make my first campaign for the google search engine. It's about making a campaign that shows my stuff when people search things on Google.
 
But I don't want that! I want to promote my video on YouTube in a InStream Format!
 
Please help.
 
Thanks

Hello @Untold M,

To promote your Youtube video, you need to create ads using Video campaign type.

But, It seems that you have created using Search Network Only Campaign type.

Create new campaign and select campaign type as VIDEO as shown in below image.

Then you can finish your campaign successfully and promote your Youtube videos.

Hi

The problem is, I can't get out of the Search Network Campaign.
It forces me to continue and there is no real way to abort the campaign.
I can't even go to the home page of AdWords, it keeps redirecting me to
that screen.
