In adwords video it's asking me [in "add a video"] to enter my video url

 

I copy the url at my video in youtube and paste into the url space in adwords... error messg:  value needed    ..and it doesn't process the ad

 

my url is:   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=60pYF183V00&feature=plcp  it's my latest uploaded video   uploaded on july 10

 

I cleared my cache .. no help. I use firefox, which works all over youtube and adwords no problem.

Hi All,

Issue solved!

When adding a video ad to an existing campaign you should follow the steps below;

- Select ‘Ads’,
- ‘New Video Ad’,
- ‘Select a Video’,
- Search by Channel or Video URL,
- Then click onto the thumbnail to write your ad copy,
- Finally click ‘Save’.

If you are returning an error that says ‘value needed’ you need to fill out the required ad attributes e.g. headline, description etc.

Hopefully this has helped clear things up.

Best of luck with your video campaigns.
