YouTube ads only partners content?

Hi folks

 

Just saw this video where the Google rep claims that ads are only shown on "approved content", partner content, as opposed to user generated content.

Watch at 9.55 min in video.

 

This kind of surprised me, and I am not sure they actually means by that.

Does anyone have further information?

I think it means that if a channel did not choose to monetize their channel they are not called "a partner".

I think she refers to the YouTube monetization program. (For users who have a YouTube channel, with their unique content))

If you are a Youtube partner (have a monetized channel) you've the ability to show ads on your own videos and hence earn money. You've the ability also to disable it.

But ads may appear next to your uploaded videos even if you are not a Google partner (haven’t monetized the videos yourself) as in the following URL:-

I really can´t understand what she means by "content that has been approved by us".

I am sure Google doesn´t watch through all content that could possibly show ads

@ David;
Google does check the content (by a human reviewer) before accepting a channel to the monetization program.
