At almost 30k subs I have the option to disable skippable ads on monetized videos. I fully understand the impacts of potentially having an impatient viewer jump out of the video but these are pretty good retention and liked videos that they will stick around for. Will turning off skippable ads increase the revenue for the video due to advertisers paying more and getting more exposure? Right now most of the $ for the video (

I think it depends on if you have another ad revenue to fill the place of the skippable ads. If you completely remove preroll ads and keep only a banner ad, then your revenue will probably drop by a magnitude. I'm not sure what would happen if you forced unskippable preroll ads, but I'd hypothesize your revenue might increase slightly. If the unskippable ads are short, I think most viewers will watch them. I think video retention is hit the hardest when the ads are placed in the middle of a video.
