** Update: YouTube only lets you disable ads on videos that have been monetized.**
Ads displaying on your videos can not only become an annoyance, but they can also take the focus off your video. "Is there a way to prevent ads from showing up on my YouTube videos?" you might ask. Yes, there is a way to eliminate ads for the videos to which you own all the rights.
Here are the simple steps you’ll need to take to do just that.
First, sign in to your YouTube channel. Next you’ll want to click the "video manager" button on the drop down on the top right.
Next you’ll want to click "edit" on the video you want to stop displaying ads on.
From there click the "monetization" button.
Finally, you’ll want to uncheck the "monetize with ads" box.
This little trick helps to stop displaying ads on any videos that are monetized. Of course, if you’re looking for great content to post to YouTube, we can help you with the editing process.
