Out-stream Youtube videos with built-in Autoplay

Hey guys, recently I have stumbled upon an add on an AdSense powered website that was an YouTube video with a built in Autoplay function that showed that ad without a need to click on the play button and wasn't redirecting me at any time on Youtube. Can somebody explain me how was it created?

It looked like this(AdTrue?) with a Youtube play button and once when clicked it was directing me to the Youtube.

 

Thanks a million!!

Hi @Mateo S,

 

It sounds like you were viewing a display ad that uses animation or video. While both options would do what you saw, only an animated display ad would play without a click. A display ad with video does not have a play button like a YouTube video but it still needs to be clicked on (the ad). 

 

Kind Regards,

 

James
