First, we want to remind that the Ads.txt initiative is only impacting monetization on embedded videos. If your activity is based on the views made directly on Dailymotion, you are not impacted by this initiative.
How can I continue to earn revenues on embedded videos?

Customize my Ads.txt file
Publishers can create an ads.txt file in Notepad or any other basic text-editing program according to the specifications set out by the IAB. The Ads.txt file must contain the following fields:
- Domain name of the advertising system, SSP or an ad exchange (ex. ‘google.com');
- Publisher account ID (a unique string of numbers/letters);
- Type of relationship (‘direct’ or ‘reseller’);
- Certification authority ID (currently TAG ID);
- Comments can be added in the file after the “#” symbol. The comments will not be taken into account by the crawler
This is how the string would look in an “/ads.txt” file:
google.com, pub-7019376976432612, RESELLER # video
