    Hi guys, I apologize if this is on the wrong Topic but I have a question that has been running through my head for a while now.

    I have noticed that Videos on ZShare have Ads on the Videos. In fact, we have got to Close the Ads to Play the Videos and more often than not, I end up clicking on the Ads before the "Close to Play" button actually pop up.

    Obviously, there are also Videos that have Google Ads integrated into them.

    My question is 1) Is it a Lucrative Monetization Model if I could get about 5,000 Traffic at least per month? 2) How can we Integrate the Ads into the Videos?

    I'm not too sure if we must have our own Video Player because right now, I am currently Embedding Video Links into my Website.

    Thanks for your time reading this and I look forward to the response and advice!

    You DO have to have your own video player. There is no other way.

    I know of a player that can do that, and that is the good olde JW Player. Google it, it's awesome.

    The only problem with it is that if you want to integrate ads, you have to purchase a license, which is kinda pricey.

    Otherwise, I really have no idea if it'd be lucrative or not.
    Probably, but you can forget about Google Ads.

    I think I'd be more wise if you contact an advertising agency and talk to them directly. You can ask them if they'd like to advertise on your site and you can even show them an example of what you'd like to do.

    They'll eat you up like cake ;)

    Or, you can cut out the middleman and contact sponsors directly, but that's a bit out of most people's league, and, depending on your site, you may not have much success.
