Hi @Blue C,


You have to specifically set up AdWords for your purpose. 

Show your display ad on YouTube. 


Do you have a YouTube channel?

Linking YouTube channel to AdWords account.


Do you want to advertise your videos on YouTube as an ad?

Advertise on YouTube.


I think you just want the first option, which is set up within AdWords. If you can tell us a little more about your campaign, we can provide more specific help. 


Kind Regards,
