Hi @iDream s,


Seems you're gonna create your first campaign and the video option is missing. My best advice is to go ahead and create just any campaign with any settings, but with very small $ amounts. When done, please go to the campaigns page, next select and disable it. You'll have approx 10 mins to delete it,


When you are done, click on the large red +CAMPAIGN button and select video ads. Make your selection on the next page whereupon you'll be brought to this:




After that, please go ahead as prompted. However, before spending any funds, you are strongly recommended to get familiar with the help page linked-to below.

Hey @iDream s,


You are viewing the initial campaign setup window for first time account initiations. After you fill out that page, you will be taken to another window to finalize billing details. Basically, you're setting up your business adwords account right now.


Once all that is finalized you will be able to access your adwords dashboard where you can link your YouTube account to this newly created Adwords account and select "video" as your campaign type. Review Google's setup overview here: Video Campaign Setup


Also, here is a simple walkthrough video that should give you a visual: YouTube with Adwords | Intermediate Tutorial 


Let me know if you have any issues?


Good luck Smiley Happy
