MCC account can't create video campaigns

I have just been told by Google that an MCC account can't create video campaigns? I can't find any other info to support or deny this, but it seems a little strange that the MCC level can't create a simple video campaign. Has anybody out there had the same issue?

"The availability of creating a video campaign under an MCC account is not available. I would like to inform you that you will be able to create a video campaign under any of your child accounts, however it is not available for an MCC account."

Hey Zane P,

Do you mean you can not create a campaign within the MCC, or that you can not create a video campaign when accessing a child account through MCC?

This message is telling you the campaign must be created from within a child account, not that you can't create a video campaign. Campaigns belong to the child account, not the MCC.

Best of Luck!

As per my understanding, you want to create video campaign in child account under MCC account. To setup video campaign in child account, you have to click on "+Campaign" on campaign tab and then select "Online Video" as campaign type.
