Companion banner ads in YouTube - how do I know the ad is running?

Hi there,


I'm trying to confirm that my YouTube in-stream ad has a companion banner running. I'm unable to upload an image for the companion ad (anyone know why?) so I've chosen the auto-generate option.


The first time I previewed the ad the companion banner appeared top right. All subsequent previews appeared without the companion banner. How can I confirm that the banner is working correctly and appearing for ad viewers?


Sorry, stupid question I'm sure.
