    I started a channel with a bunch of short videos less than 10 seconds each and I'm not seeing any advertisements, do videos have to be a certain length for an ad to be shown? Keep in mind all monetization is turned on and I have a verified adsense account.

    Well assuming the ad usually takes 5 seconds i think your vides should be longer than 20 seconds. But im not 100% sure.

    I can't find it, but I could swear I read something a year or so ago that said something about 30 seconds being a minimum for ads to show.
