Recently Google launched the Outstream video ad format for mobile web, apps, and websites other than YouTube.
The ad unit does not need a YouTube video to display in-stream video ads.
With these Outstream ads, publishers can monetize with video.
For mobile web, the ad unit is placed in banners and for apps in banners, interstitials, and in-feed.
Only websites and apps from Google video partners are allowed to display the ad unit.
The ad unit is sold on a viewable CPM basis.
As the user scrolls down a page and the Outstream video ads come into view, it automatically plays without sound.
Once tapped on the Outstream ad, the sound will turn on, and the video will restart.
