    So I have a channel with 20k subs where I always use mid-roll ad breaks.

    Today, I upload a 20min video to another channel of mine that has about 2k subs. However, I do not have the option to insert mid-roll ads in the monetisation tab. (The channel is partner verified, monetisation is activated, AdSense connected)

    Are there any requirements one has to fulfil before being allowed to use ad breaks?
    Or is there anything I have to do in order to have this feature enabled?

    i dont know the exact requierments but there are for sure.
    for instance i noticed that videos that are shorter than 10 minutes or so dont even have an option for you to choose when in the video the ad will pop.

    Yeah only 10 min limit is listed at youtube help. Maybe age does matters here. How old is your new account?

    Hi socialmediapro, thanks for your answer! According to socialblade, my account was created on Sep 1st, 2013. So i guess account age isn't the problem here.

    I think I'll head over to the Google productforums and ask there as well
