It’s look like Adsense Team has decided to retire their video units feature (YouTube content and video ads on your pages) by  end of this April for not reaching their target. This feature actually is not available for Adsense publisher in Malaysia, I don’t think it will affect much to us.

Seriously, who want to click a ad link appeared on the video, it’s quite annoying actually. So I think it the right move for Adsense to stop this feature.

For Adsense publisher that use this feature please remove the video units from your page and replace it with content ad units. If not your page will be turn up side down since all  video unit sizes will show standard embedded YouTube players.

Guys, so you can concentrate more on your content now 🙂

Starting today, the option to sign up for video units is no longer available to new publishers. If you’re currently displaying video units, we recommend that you start removing the video unit code from your pages as soon as possible so you can optimize your available ad space in advance.

Please be assured that any earnings you’ve generated from video units in the past will still be credited to your AdSense account.
