AdBrite InVideo Video Player and Advertising

Posted By Darren Rowse 5th of January 2007 Advertising, Pro Blogging News 0 Comments

Logo-Top-NewI just saw the promo page of the new video solution/player that AdBrite are about to launch for bloggers and webmasters who want to use video on their sites and monetize it. It’s called ‘InVideo’ (beta) and it’s got some features that have me interested (if only I used video).

Here’s how they’re promoting it’s features:

  • Fully customizable video player, easy-to-use, and 100% free
  • Brand your videos with your own custom logo “watermark”
  • “Split-screen” ads engage users without interrupting viewing experience
  • Sharing features promote your site when your videos get “viral”
  • Earn money from your videos, even when they’re embedded into other peoples’ Web sites

There’s no word on what they’ll be paying for the ads but it looks like a service well worth testing if you’re using video on your blog.

  1. so the bandwidth comes from whose end? is adbrite hosting the video too? or just the player? pretty clever ads IMO.

  2. I wonder if they will be paying for ad views or clicks? Adbrites network ads work quite well for me on a CPM basis, however, if they are CPC and they are so non-intrusive, I can’t see it doing too well.

    Nice effort though, stops YT and GV hogging your content :)

  3. Will the videos have to be uploaded onto their server? Or can you use your own videos to play them?

  4. This looks like a really great tool, but it’s actually pretty limited. You can only advertise on your own videos and you can only use AdBrite advertisers.

    I’ve been using BubblePLY.com for a few weeks now to monetize my videos and it’s going pretty well. You can add links to videos from any of your affiliate programs or advertisers and you don’t have to share your revenue with anyone…

  5. This is pretty darn cool. I’ve been talking about someone trying to monetize video for some time, great work by Adbrite.

    Thanks for this information Darren !
    I’m curious how this would work on my site … I think I will give it a try : )

    If it’s not good then I’ve lost nothing and gained knowledge.


  7. I do like this, I plan on using it on a few different sites.

  9. I just love the fact that, after weeks of 2007 predictions from the great and the good, most of them talking about how video will be monetised with invideo ads, it’s been done. Does that mean we all get to go off on holiday until next December? ;-)

  10. Sounds cool. And anyone pitching a product to Pantera in the background has my support.

  11. […] Just came across this at Problogger. It’s a new in-video ad solution set to be launched by AdBrite. The ads aren’t intrusive, you get paid by the view(I think) and you can brand the videos with your own logo. The videos can be shared and embedded in other peoples sites/blogs allowing you to earn more if your video goes viral. No mention of exactly what percentage of the ad-share you get but it’s still a very interesting development.

  12. Here is a video preview of the account area of InVideo – enjoy!


  13. I’m using the AdBrite player on my vlog: dailytang.com/vlog. (NSFW) It works pretty well but as with all web ads you’ll need to drive massive traffic to make anything other than beer money. clicks are in the 1 to 5 cent range and the only advertiser seems to be a “work from home” scheme. After a thousand or so views the ad disappears.

  14. I’m using Adbrite Invideo on my blog. You can find an example at: http://stronglifts.com/weight-training-video-8-deadlift/

    To answer the questions that were asked:
    *you have to host the videos yourself, adbrite doesn’t host them.
    *the player is hosted by adbrite, you receive a code to include on your blog.

    So far, I had clicks, but no earnings. Not much traffic on the blog, so I guess I’ll have to wait more before making any conclusions. However, the adbrite invideo player works great & readers don’t seem to mind the ads.

  15. Btw,

    I live in Europe & I don’t get to see the ads. US residents do however.

  16. It is a good idea to run InVideo on web pages, specially if the publisher is looking for some Adsense alternatives.

    But, as you may know, you need a lot of traffic in order to make a living with Adbrite InVideo.

    Wish you the best!

  17. Wanna try .see the results.

  18. you can make your own band width but you have to maintain a server your own pc with a considerably good internet connection can easily become a server by its own. Think again… But what they pay have a major impact than the bandwidth because if at all you use your own bandwidth also you must atleast get the money to maintain your own website bandwidth( i mean it must be more than cost of bandwidth) they might pay considerably high atleast hope so
