Video content is often interrupted by advertisements. The advertisement is often skipped by users leading to poor ad conversion for ad publishers. This disclosure describes techniques in which a muted small movable ad video frame is displayed concurrently with main video content. The user can move the advertisement window within the video content while the advertisement is being displayed. Further, the video hosting platform can automatically place the ad frame such that it does not obstruct the view of the main content, e.g., by placing the ad frame in top or bottom black bands of the video. If the user unmutes the advertisement, the video content is automatically muted if it is a live stream and paused otherwise. The pause or mute action is user configurable.
