Yesterday I wrote about the launch of Google AdSense video units, but like I said, no one with an AdSense account was able to use the feature yet. As of last night that changed.

Here is a how to, on setting up Google AdSense Video Units via YouTube.

Step 1: Go to your AdSense Set Up Page and click on the YouTube (Video Units) option as pointed out in the image below:

Step 3: Confirm your AdSense account with YouTube (first time only). You are taken to YouTube after you agree to the disclaimer. This is where you plugin your AdSense account information, so YouTube and AdSense can communicate.
