Hi ninjanorm, I may have misunderstood you here but if they're your own videos why don't you just put your Ads on them yourself?  The whole point of YouTube Ads is that they allow your Ads to appear on the videos of other people because you have no control over those videos.  If you own the videos you're uploading, you can just edit your own Ads in whenever you want.

 

If you want clickable links you could use a Call To Action overlay or a label, title, etc.  All these are available under "Annotations" within your Video Manager.

Let me  understand:

You want your ads to run on your own YouTube channel?

yes that's what we are doing now but it is not a viable work flow because it is too time consuming, we can't switch ads without re-uploading the video, etc. The ads are also skipable in the time line. Over all not practical. We need a simple this video will preroll this video set up.

 

that's why i'm asking.

 

Thanks for the advice on the annotations, but not what were looking for.

 

Ill take that as a no to my original question then.

 

Thanks.

Did you ever find the answer to this? I too am looking to pre-roll my own ads. Editing them in doesn't allow for switching ads in a practical way. It would be of tremendous help.
