Google video content through AdSense

Google hints that it will soon be offering video content through its AdSense network.

Here’s an example of the new player:

A few interesting things:

  • The video appears to be higher quality than the typical videos on Google video.
  • In this example, the ad appears after the content (which I think is a good idea)
  • The player has a playlist, in this case with three videos: a logo video, the content video, and an ad video. In this example, the playlist controls let you skip a video instead of forcing you to sit through the logo or the ad.
  • There is no shuttle control for moving to a certain point within the video.

Since this is being offered through AdSense, I assume that Google will be offering some kind of revenue share, but the details have not been revealed at this time.

    I saw one of these on iLounge this morning. It was for some “MTV News Update”.
