YouTube Help My channel does not monetize but my most popular video has ads at the beginning and end, how do I remove them?

YouTube can place ads on any video whether you are monetized or not. Monetized, i.e. becoming a member of the YouTube Partner Program, simply means they'll share some of the revenue with you. It doesn't that they are obligated to avoid putting ads on your videos. Big difference.

Sounds like it may be a copyright claim on that video. I would check in the analytics to make sure theirs not a claim on it and if it is, change the song or whatever content is being claimed.

Hello Stacy,

What you suggest is not possible because all my content is made by me and I use the YouTube sound library, also in YouTube Studio appears that my channel is free of any copyright infringement and in the future it can monetize without problems, the situation is how Damon mentioned, YouTube can place ads where it sees fit. Thank you for your concern :).

Not a claim. YouTube will put ads on videos regardless of whether you are monetized... and that is a good thing. While YT gets a lion's share of the revenue collected across the platform the more money they make the better off we all are.

Be advised that while you are correct here don't think that just because you use YT Audio Library and everything you film is yours that you will never see a copyright claim. It is very rare, but the false and erroneous claims can happen. They are typically very easy to resolve, but they do happen.
