Does anyone know if you can chose a custom preview for when viewers hover the mouse over the thumbnail as with some of my videos the preview is just awful and just shows my intro .
I would prefer choosing something from the gameplay much more eye catching.

I looked into that and am pretty sure the answer is no.

Can't say definitively though.

I did a quick search and I barely found anything that even talked about it, let alone customize it.

Sorry, yeah probably be a while until they get to something like that.

It'd be handy to know if there's even a specific time point in the video they select to draw that  mouseover preview from. That way the video could be structured accordingly.

That would be nice but I think it might be random as sometimes it shows the first few seconds of my video and sometimes it's generated several minutes in

I would also really like to know why certain videos do not have any preview at all.

At first I thought it might have been that the video contains age limit but I checked and a horror movie that I posted has a working preview but a gameplay of Tiger handheld Sonic doesn't.

I have an answer for you, not going to like it.

It's Youtube.

Yeah, terrible answer, but the truth. Google does what google wants and there is little we can do about it.  ???
