There is simply no way to embed an Ad in a video unobtrusively, except perhaps by giving users the option to disable these ads 1) before a video plays and 2) immediately after an Ad starts plays (i.e. no wait 5 seconds to skip), and probably also 3) globally for the site in question.

Just making it analogous to TV means you need to at least block pop-up ads and ads that stay on the screen while the content is playing. Additionally, maybe some rules could be only allowing ads outside of the video frame, limits on how long ads can last, the number of ads for the given amount of content, only allowing ads at the beginning or end of the content (not interrupting the content), etc. I like the idea of being able to skip ads immediately, too.

So if you want you can apply or ask someone else you trust (e.g. some digitial rights organization) to apply (see list of members and application form).
