Do embedded YouTube videos in Panopto still trigger the ads?

I've been tinkering with the Add a YouTube video function in the Panopto editor. I'm wondering if the embedded video will play w/o the advertisements that often appear throughout some YouTube videos or are they filtered out when added to Panopto content. Any thoughts?

    Hi @Mario Menendez,

    YouTube videos embedded in a Panopto video will not play ads. If the person watching the video selects the 'Watch on YouTube' button, it will launch the YouTube video in a new tab and will play ads.

    If you have any additional questions, please feel free to ask - we're always happy to help!

    Best wishes,
    Cait McCabe
