Your earnings from video ads will depend on the pricing of the specific video ads you display. Video ads can be either cost-per-click or cost-per-thousand-impressions. When paid on a CPC basis, you'll receive earnings for each valid clickthrough on ad -- that is, a click on the display URL or playing video that directs a user to the advertisers' website. When paid on a CPM basis, you'll be paid for impressions of the opening image, rather than plays of the video.
In March 2015, YouTube launched support for publishing and viewing 360-degree videos, with playback on its website and its Android mobile apps. Parent company Google also announced that it would collaborate with camera manufacturers to make it easier for creators to upload 360-degree content recorded with their products to YouTube.[13] However, in 2017, Google and YouTube began to promote an alternative stereoscopic video format known as VR180, which is limited to a 180-degree field of view, but is promoted as being more accessible to produce than 360-degree video, and allowing more depth to be maintained by not subjecting the video to equirectangular projection [8][16]
