Microsoft video ads can last anywhere from six seconds to two minutes, but the company recommends that movies no longer than 30 seconds generate the best interaction.

The video aspect ratio can range from 16:9 (widescreen) to 9:16 (narrowscreen) (vertical).

Microsoft provides the following video ad bidding options:
  • Optimize for impressions: Bid per 1000 viewable impressions. When a viewer observes two seconds of continuous play, an impression is recorded.
  • Optimize for views: Bid on a single video view. When a person views at least 15 seconds of video or clicks on the ad, a view is recorded.
  • Optimize for clicks: Bid per click on the video. When a viewer arrives at your website, a click is recorded.
