Google extends video online advertising to UK Google has extended its video online advertising system to the UK, Ireland and Canada.
The system allows people to embed videos on their sites and earn extra revenue from "relevant, non-intrusive ads".
On the AdSense Blog, the company stated: "With this new launch, publishers in the UK, Ireland and Canada will be able to show videos from our YouTube content partners and choose those videos by category, individual YouTube partner, or have video automatically targeted to their site."
The video service was launched in the US in October.
