Advertisers can create video clips up to 15 seconds and add a text, a link to their website, or CTA-buttons to these clips, it is also possible to use background sounds from the free Yandex library. Advertisers can upload their own background clips or choose one of the thousand ready-made videos available in the Yandex video library.
