Video ad custom start time
I'm considering promoting a video from my channel on YouTube using AdWords True View, but I have 2 questions:
1. I will be using an existing YouTube video (that is being promoted) as an ad itself. Is it possible to set a custom video ad start time? The reason I need this is because we have our production company opening slate at the beginning that I don't want to show in the ad
2. Will video ad views under 30 second mark be counted as Youtube views on the video?
