Hello,

Simulating the addition of video ads is currently not supported in
the Sandbox environment. I've let the engineering team know that there
is some demand for this, and it may be supported in the future, but
apologies for the time being.

Hello,

Could you try your attempt to create a video ad in the Sandbox
environment again? The engineering team made a config change that
*should* have enabled folks for it.

Hi Jeff,

In the following request there is an unsuccesful attempt to create a
videoad in the sandbox... meanwhile the same request will succeed in
the PROD environment.

So apparently the problem remains the same as i keep getting the
following error: "The specified user not allowed to create a video
ad."

remark: it is understood now that the videoid, for videoad creation
int the sandbox, must always be 101 (you fellows defined it like
that).

Hrmmm... I just passed that along to the engineering team and we'll
see if there's anything else that they need to do to the Sandbox
environment.

Hi Jeff, any ideas what went wrong with the above soap request?

Hello Yaron,

Unfortunately, I've been told that while the configuration change to
support video ad creation in the Sandbox was submitted, due to an
oversight in the push process it wasn't properly applied to the
Sandbox environment. Apologies for the miscommunication and the delay
in getting this implemented.

I'll post again when I hear that the configuration change has been
properly pushed out so that you can try again.

Cheers,
-Jeff Posnick, AdWords API Team

Hi Jeff,

Do you foresee Video-Ads support on AdWords Editor in the near future?

Hello Yaron,

I'm afraid that I'm not in sync with the AdWords Editor team's
product plans. And I can't really post speculation about potential
features even if I did have some inside knowledge. My recommendation
would be to post the request at

http://www.google.com/support/adwordseditor/bin/request.py

or if you have a Google account rep that you work with, perhaps
mention the feature request to him or her.

Cheers,
-Jeff Posnick, AdWords API Team
