I have similar videos in the beginning, but very different in the muddle and in the end. But all my thumbs looks like first frame — there is only background, objects appears later.

Is it really difficult to implement this feature — automatically generates 10 thumbs and we choose best of it?

I've already started a thread on this but nobody seems to be interested….

We are currently working to replace the preview thumb with a thumb from the middle of the video. Let's wait and see how this change improves or affects the video preview. We expect your feedback if you still see there are issue.

We cannot promise a slide from which you can make your own selection at this point, but we will try to find an optimal solution if necessary.

So we're open to discussion and suggestions, bring your arguments on :).

The problem with automatically choosing a thumb from the middle of the video is that you will often get a blurred preview thumb because of movement. You really need to have a selection to choose from.

I totally agree with Jabiru.
Afixado: 02/01/2014, 09:22:40 AM
Agreed. A couple of the other footage sites allow you to either choose a thumbnail from different points in time or allow you to upload your own thumbnail. I, too, have a number of clips in which the thumbnail doesn't represent the clip well. Frustrating!
Mac Pro 12-core, Adobe After Effects, Cinema 4D, Photoshop, Illustrato...

Nice that I found this thread.

My first video approved a few days back.

The thumb (or Preview thumbnail) is just a black screen.

Please see this

How I wish this will show some other frame from the clip.

Seems it's rocket science to inplement this feature on 8 months.
Afixado: 08/31/2014, 04:16:08 AM
Any chance of selecting your own thumbnail?? Any new developments? I put my hand up for this as an option..
As it says in the Youtube optimization FAQ section (related in terms of how people search video online)

"Thumbnails are very, very important: in fact, it is become probably more important than a good title."

Yes, guys, it's in the oven. We'll let you know when it's available.
Afixado: 11/10/2015, 09:51:00 AM
Your wish, our command. Now you have the chance to customize the thumbnail of your video.
Please access your video files, click edit and choose the timing. Don't forget to press Save.
The new thumb will be generated in a few hours, so you need to be patient.

Hope it's great news! Let us know your thoughts.

Thanks for this...it's an important upgrade.

Hello Malinash,

The customize thumbnail function is not working for all of my videos and I have been waiting for more than a day, the longest one waited more than two weeks. Please help.

Although your LINK is not working, it seems the steps are obvious: just choose the frame you like and press the save button. Am I right?

I have cleared my browser's cache hope it fixs the problem but nothing changed.

Afixado: 08/04/2016, 18:06:24 PM
We will verify this. Thanks for letting us know.
Afixado: 08/05/2016, 04:34:04 AM
UPDATE: Can you please try again? It should work now. Thanks!
Afixado: 08/05/2016, 07:53:49 AM
Thank you Malinash. It works now :)
Afixado: 08/05/2016, 18:15:23 PM
Hi Malinash!

I have the same problem as Charon. I can't change thumbnail on my videos. I choose the frame, press the save button wait for hours, days, weeks, but nothing changes. Please help!
Afixado: 12/22/2016, 10:17:35 AM
Fixed. Thanks for letting us know. Please try again, but allow a couple of hours in order to see it.
Afixado: 12/23/2016, 05:13:43 AM
Malinash, hello! Sorry, but it's still not working for me. Thumbnails don't change. Could you try to help me again?
Afixado: 02/01/2017, 13:48:33 PM
Please use CTR + F5 in order to clear your cache and then try again. We have tested and it worked on our end. You cam also send us the ID so we can test it.
