How to find an ad on YouTube? Is there a way to locate a specific one and save it?  - It’s hard to find one that you saw in the past, but it’s easy to find the video source of an ad on YouTube that you’re currently watching, and even save it to your PC!

How to find an ad I saw on YouTube?

If you are looking for the recent YouTube ads history list, there’s no way in the past. YouTube doesn’t provide “viewed ad history” function as such in the past – Reason could be most YouTube users don’t have a need for that. In that case, you might have to check your browser history and watch the YouTube videos again, or search for popular YouTube advertisement (like YouTube ads leaderboard) and see if the ad you intend to find is there.

Mostly, the ads during/before YouTube video are independent videos provided by the advertiser. Every video on YouTube has a particular video ID, which coincides with the ad video URL. To find the YouTube ad video source, is to find the corresponding video URL. Here’s how.

Step 1. Now that the YouTube page is playing the ad you desired, right-click on it > Stats for nerds. Then you’ll see the stats of the YouTube ad video at the upper-left side of the video.

Step 2. Triple-click to select the Video ID/sCPN information (without the “Video ID/sCPN” letters). Use the keyboard shortcut “Ctrl+C” to copy it.

Step 3. Go to the address bar of the browser, and you can see the URL of the current YouTube video page, select the part after the equals sign “=”, and “Ctrl+V” to replace it with the video ID you just copied. That’s exactly the URL of the ad video. From now on, I believe you can easily find ads on YouTube with the Video ID.

Then press “Enter” on your keyboard and you’ll be led to a new window where the ad is played as an independent video.
