Mid-Roll placement

I understand ads can run before (pre), during (mid), or after (post) a video. Is there a way to specifically target mid-roll? Thanks!

Hi @Candice J,

 

While indeed some of the documentation suggests otherwise (and there could be some very specific buys available), I've only encountered pre-roll ads available via TrueView in-stream campaigns.

 

I'm not aware of any current options to target/choose when the ad can appear during a video.

I further confirmed with my rep: Though mid-roll ads do appear during longer videos on YouTube, there is currently no way to specify serving via pre-roll vs. mid-roll.
