Want to monetize with Video on your site? Mediavine has all your video bases covered. Here's how we can help you make the most of the awesome video content you are creating.
We understand how much time and energy goes into creating video content. Mediavine has the right solutions for you and your readers! We want your video content to shine while making sure your site still stays nice and fast, and we want to make sure you are earning the most that you can out of each video you create.
Autoplay video is a setting that allows video to start automatically without any direct action by the user. At Mediavine, we always autoplay muted for the best user experience.
Autoplay is the industry standard for publishers who are serious about video revenue. It is the best way to gain impressions and views, and typically adds significant amounts to your bottom line.
The Universal Player
The Universal Video Player is a small, sticky player that doesn’t require any uploaded video content. It plays short video “commercials” in mute mode as the reader scrolls.
It's a great video option if making and editing videos isn't your forte, or if you have video and just want to score some extra ad impressions on your posts!
Featured Video or Playlist
You can choose a video or playlist to feature site-wide on posts that don't have their own video. This means you can monetize ALL of your content with high-paying video ads - even posts that don't have a video specifically created for them.
Not sure which video to choose? Try the UpNext Playlist.
All Featured options will autoplay in mute mode and require the autoplay settings to be enabled. Learn more about our settings and how they work here.
Embedded video is a video that you've manually placed into an individual post via the HTML embed code from your Mediavine Dashboard Video page or the MCP Video shortcode. This is generally a video that was created specifically for one post.
Embedded video is great for SEO, and it's great for your readers. Once you have uploaded your video to the dashboard, you can grab the embed code and place it in the HTML of your site, or you can use the Mediavine Control Panel to place your video.
If you need an embedded video to either not autoplay and/or not be altered by our optimized video placement option, you can do that by selecting the appropriate custom video attribute when you are grabbing the HTML embed code from your Mediavine video library.
Optimize Video Placement
The ideal place for video to run is just outside of the first screenview. This ensures your initial page load stays lightning fast, but also that the video will start to play high enough up on the screen that your reader will get to see most of your video and may even be able to see another video that runs after it via our Video Playlist.
Our Optimize Video Placement settings will find the best spot for you automatically, no matter where you place the embed code. On desktop, your video placement will be ≥ 1 paragraph under your 1st in-content ad and on mobile your video placement will be ≥ 1 paragraph under your 2nd in-content ad.
Mid-Roll Video Ads
Videos longer than 8 minutes will serve midroll ads, so you can take full advantage of your longer, more detailed videos. This setting is enabled by default.
If you'd prefer to opt out, you can find this setting in your video settings tab.

Our video options and settings are very robust so you can tailor them to fit your needs. We're happy to help you find the right settings configuration. If you have any questions at all, just email firstname.lastname@example.org. We are happy to assist!
