I was wondering if it would be possible to add the ability for use to put custom thumbnails on our videos when we go to edit the thumbnails. I like to make custom thumbnails for my YouTube channel's LPs and I'd like to start doing it for some of my Game Anyone exclusives. Think it would be possible?

I think that is a good idea. You can kinda already put custom thumbnails on your vids if you use a YT playlist and have already put your custom thumbnails on them.

This was brought up before. It is not completely out of the question to add, but I think custom thumbnails defeat the purpose of what thumbnails are supposed to do.

I don't just want to see some generic picture with a number next to it. This doesn't represent the video. This is especially bad when you are looking at each of the thumbnails next to each other on a playlist. I really don't think this is what YT had in mind when they added this feature.

All that being said, we may want to revamp our thumbnail system and find ways to showcase them better. I don't have any specific ideas for this though.

Could they be made a bit larger? They're small on my 1920x1080, 24" monitor.

On what page? The playlist page sometimes lists 100's of videos, so they have to be small. If there are only a few videos on the playlist then they display larger.

Where could we make them larger?
