About Youtube Thumbnail Downloader Tool
YT (You Thumbnail) YouTube thumbnail downloader allows you to download YouTube thumbnails easily and fastly. It's an online tool, not need to install any app, entirely free for anyone to use.
What's YouTube thumbnail?
YouTube thumbnail is the video cover image that gives a preview of the video. There are two types of YouTube thumbnail: automatically generated by YouTube, and uploaded by the creator. Thumbnails uploaded by creators are also called custom thumbnails. No matter what kind of thumbnail, its URL is hidden, you can't find the thumbnail link on YouTube, and you can't save it.
How many thumbnails does a YouTube video have?
A YouTube video can have up to nine thumbnails, but not every video has nine thumbnails. There are seven thumbnails guaranteed to exist:
- Player Background 480x360
- Start 120x90
- Middle 120x90
- End 120x90
- High-Quality 480x360
- Medium Quality 320x180
- Normal Quality 120x90
Besides, if the video is high-definition, there will be two other sizes of the thumbnail.
- Standard Definition 640x480
- Maximum Resolution 1920x1080
But the most commonly used sizes are High-Quality, Medium Quality, and full size. Therefore, the YT Youtube thumbnail downloader only provides downloads in these three sizes. If you need other sizes, I'll tell you how to get it later.
