Hi Justin,

Linking your YouTube account to the AdWords account is not a prerequisite for running an ad. You can still run a video ad even if the two accounts aren't linked.

If they are linked, you just have additional features like creating remarketing lists based on YouTube visitors, setting up call-to-action overlays, and some additional reporting features.

Linking the two accounts is fairly easy. On the left-hand side navigation in the AdWords for Video portion of your AdWords account, just click "Link your YouTube account." And it will prompt you to input the login credentials for your YouTube account.

Hope that helps!

Hi Nakul,

That's an interesting error message. Just to make sure: if you login with those same credentials, are you able to access the channel okay on youtube.com?

If so, can you try clearing your cache/cookies in your browser, just so we can rule that out as the issue?
