YouTube videos coming to Google Adsense

Google Adsense will now allow publishers to embed selected YouTube clips for a cut of ad revenue. Explains News.com, “Site owners can choose whether they want a static banner ad that sits on top of the video player or a text overlay ad that appears 10 seconds into the clip and covers up 20 percent of the bottom of the screen.
