As of April 16, 2012 this trick is no longer working. YouTube has 'fixed' the issue that caused this technique to work, so we are sorry to say it no longer works. It was fun while it lasted. I'm leaving the rest of the text below to help document what happened before.
*Older UPDATE* After Feb 26, 2012 YouTube was working on 'fixing' this trick so it may be extra 'tricky'. We have since made adjustments to our procedures. We Verified it is still working as of 3/4/12 & 3/8/12, 3/21/12 with the new tweaks mentioned in the annotations.
*Another Older Update*
Here is where it works as of 3/23/12... It works most places where you see the small version of the Thumbnail: YouTube & Google Search Results (the best place for getting new eyeball to see it!), Inside YouTube Playlists and the Channel Feed area. It still works inside Google+ (if you paste in the URL when posting).
It has Stopped working in Facebook, Twitter, and on YouTube in these 2 areas: The Featured Video & The Videos Tab.

Some adjustments to the trick may require more waiting.
[tip: wait for the TN image to update in the Video Mgr. *BEFORE* making the Trim edit] NOTE: Leave Annotations ON to see the latest in update tips!

Non-Partner Channels on YouTube can now Choose Their Own Thumbnail image using this technique. We've all been waiting for this for a while... use it while you can, as it may stop working any time.
Thanks go out to Justin of "JustinHatesPie" on YouTube. He made a comment on one of my Thumbnail Trick videos which started me down the path of discovery for my Modified Tutorial you see here. Watch his similar tutorial at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9rhlIc... I guess he learned what he did from: 'XPureMadnessX'
Our Version of this Tutorial shows you how to make this trick work Most Everywhere on the Web including Social Media sites like GooglePlus. Plus our way of doing it also works on most YouTube Mobile Apps and in most YouTube locations.
WARNING: Using the steps of other people's methods may not work in as many places online... Our method WORKS MOSTLY EVERYWHERE!
The goal is to show the Custom YouTube Thumbnail as soon as you can. So remember to make your video 'Private' (or 'Unlisted') as soon as you can while you are uploading it. In case you forget and now you are waiting for your Special Edit to be processed...
EXTRA TIP: Make the video "Private" / "Unlisted" while edits are being processed by
# Going to the "Video Manager",
# Select the check mark for the video being "processed",
# Using the "Actions" drop-down, Select "Private"/'Unlisted" from the list.
ALSO... once you've got the Special Thumbnail working, you CAN edit the Info & Settings all you want, but DON'T TOUCH the Thumbnail Area & DON'T EDIT the VIDEO anymore online... you'll break the trick if you do - and loose your work! (it is a hack)
