Ads That Are Disruptive
Based on a survey taken from 45000 consumers these 3 kinds of ads are more disruptive:
These are long, unskippable ads or a group of ads that run before a video. The length of these ads is less than 31 seconds.
These are those ads that come in the middle of the video. There is no specific duration od these ads.
Text or Image Ads:
Any ad that appears on the top of the video content or even covers 20% part of it.
Note: New standards are only applicable to those video content whose length is less than 8 minutes. In other words, a video whose length is more than 8 minutes can get rid away with pre-roll and mid-roll ads.
