Just last Thursday(22nd March 2012), YouTube Malaysia was officially launched and local Malaysian brands & companies can actually have more advertising options on YouTube platform. IF you noticed, you’ll see a large rectangular banner like space on top of the page showing a video where it takes up almost the whole width space from left to right. Well anyway, my question was answered just recently.
