    Have you ever wanted to get the thumbnail picture from a Youtube video in full size?

    Super easy!

    (Windows)
    Press Ctrl + U to get to the source code
    Press Ctrl + F to open the search box
    Type in "og:image"

    I don't remember the mac equivalent so if anybody wants to chip in, go right ahead :)

    For the high quality version of the thumbnail use a url similar to this:
    http://img.youtube.com/vi/<insert-youtube-video-id-here>/hqdefault.jpg

    There is also a medium quality version of the thumbnail, using a url similar to the HQ:
    http://img.youtube.com/vi/<insert-youtube-video-id-here>/mqdefault.jpg

    For the standard definition version of the thumbnail, use a url similar to this:
    http://img.youtube.com/vi/<insert-youtube-video-id-here>/sddefault.jpg

    For the maximum resolution version of the thumbnail use a url similar to this:
    http://img.youtube.com/vi/<insert-youtube-video-id-here>/maxresdefault.jpg
