On-demand video publishers will get to select where in their video they want to insert an ad break, but it must be at least 20 seconds in and at least 2 minutes apart.

For example, Univision has been using the format to help its direct sales business in the U.S., Colombia, Argentina and Mexico—with cost-per-impression in the U.S. reportedly 52
Facebook video add requirements
Facebook didn’t disclose all requirements but, it said pages and profiles with more than 2,000 followers and live audiences of more than 300 people will be able to take advantage of earning money from ads. Facebook ad breaks will only be available after four minutes, with additional ad breaks available after every five minutes.
Competition for the user-generated video segment
The updates could help Facebook better compete with Google, whose creators have been making money from YouTube for years. Publishers who upload videos to Facebook may soon be able to take advantage of ads within those videos as well. Facebook is now beginning to test
