YouTube Mockup Tool

Rock up with a mockup

Show your client you're a YouTube pro by putting your latest edit in the palm of their hand. From framing to font size, show them exactly how it will appear on YouTube. You can download a version for your presentation, and even share a link with team members before seeking final approval.

See it in action:


Drag and drop your video as a .mov or .mp4 file, or select a file. Next, name your mockup. Based on video length, the format will either be automatically selected or you'll be asked to choose from skippable in-stream, non-skippable in-stream, or six-second bumper formats.

Try the YouTube Mockup Tool to see how your ad will look on YouTube.


Once you click 'view mockup', your video will automatically play within a YouTube watch screen. At the top of the screen, you can switch between different devices, either laptop, mobile landscape, or mobile portrait.
