With in-stream ads, publishers can earn money by inserting ads into qualifying videos. There are three types of ad placements that can be inserted into your content — pre-roll, mid-roll and image ads. You decide which videos you want to monetize, and then we tailor the ad experience to the viewer based on where they're watching. To make the most out of in-stream ads, follow our best practices and leverage Creator Studio to better understand performance.
We are now able to directly monetize our videos on Facebook with Ad Breaks*, and we're seeing no drop off in terms of viewer numbers or interaction rate. We're very pleased with Ad Breaks*.

Mid-roll ads are shown to a viewer during a video and work the best within a video that has natural break points. We automatically identify natural breaks in your content to place your ads, or you can choose your own placements.
