    Hi Team
    We have a small but growing TV streaming Site that currently serves about 500k pages a month.
    45k users and about 125k sessions.. traffic is mostly US and UK.
    We tried Adcash and RevenueHits but the ECPM was less than $1 and the conversion rate from any / all of the ads was 0.
    Neither the content or the player is hosted on our site.. we are simply a link aggregator with a bit of extra content (episode and actor info) thrown in..
    We do have access to the player (on a separate URL) that would be perfect for pre roll or in-stream video ads, but I cant seem to find an Ad network that that can provide..
    Any advice greatly appreciated!
    Cheers.

    Cheers Man - Will that work for non-youtube videos?

    I think it will. Not sure on YouTube Adsense but I doubt you could use them on that website anyway because of the ToS

    Hi, I cannot help with video ad, but if you can inject 300x250 banner into video I can help you monetise it.

    Did you tried with any other popunder network? For US / UK must be more than 1$ CPM.

    Ended up going with Propeller Ads..
    Seems to be going well so far.. CPM between $1 and $2 most days.. Haven't had a payout yet though..
