Yes, AdSense does, and it’s called AdSense for video! It enables publishers to monetize their video content on apps. Using the Google IMA SDK, they can serve ads from the AdSense ad network on HTML5 web, iOS, and Android video players.
Currently, AdSense for Video (AFV) is not a focus of the AdSense team. The product is in maintenance mode and isn’t open for new sign-ups from publishers.

If you are already eligible or signed up, you can continue to use it.
