YouTube videos can be embedded on any website via embed code or oEmbed that automatically converts video URL to embedded video. But when you embed videos channels you don’t own, the advertisements shown on video doesn’t makes any profit for you.
Yes, you can display your own advertisements above, below or on the side of the video but in video advertisements are of the user who uploaded the video on YouTube.
In this lesson, you will learn about a new and unique way of showing your own advertisement on any YouTube video embedded on your WordPress website.

Start by installing the plugin in your WordPress site. Upon activation visit your admin area dashboard Settings -> WordPress Video Overlay Ads page and paste your advertisement code, you may also tick the checkbox to activate close button so that your users would be able to close advertisements themselves.
