LOS ANGELES -- The number of online video ads viewed in November was 5.4 billion, making ads 15 percent of all videos viewed, up 25 percent since June when they accounted for 12 percent according to data provided to Beet.TV from comScore.

While many of those ads were streamed by big publishers including Microsoft, AOL and Google, many have been serviced by video ad networks such as Tremor Media, Adap.tv, Brightroll, YuMe, BBE and several others.

Tremor was the biggest player, serving some 477 million ads in November, comScore reports.
