    I read, that out of the 3 thumbnails you get to choose from, the middle one is the EXACT middle of your video to the frame. So some people have used this to put the exact thumbnail at the exact middle of the video.
    If you want to add a picture that is not in your video - as some people have done, you have to be a partner, no other way around it

    Its NOT the exact MIDDLE anymore! Its not randomly either.... To me the middle image is around 66%- 69% of the video. If you using sexy videos the best type of ones are ass shaking ones because you can edit them to easily have the ass in front of the camera upclose.
