Google adsense coming to actionscript ?


Well.. last night when i was browsing through youtube , i came across what i term “pure google AdSense” in flash. It seems google is coming out with a new mode of advertising for flash only content. youtube’s video player is showing “google ads” as we know it in its html version. Though am not sure if this is to be public soon, but i can be rest assured that if i see it with google they might as well be planning it. This could be a blast for the entire internet as flash templates can now carry the weights of AdSense earnings too. So designers may as well be busy with building the right kind of layout to support this rather than just the i-candy. Strangely though i dont seem to see this in every youtube video. May be its still alpha or somethig. 🙂 Who knows..
