    Hi all, I was wondering if anyone here could spot a problem with my youtube thumbnails. I've been trying to re-upload all my old ones in Hi-res after learning more about them and up until this weeks upload I've had no problems whatsoever...

    However today I uploaded my thumbnail and on tube buddy and youtube its saying my resolution is "Low-res" even though im over 2k in terms of pixel count...here are my specs:

    Width: 2398 pixels
    Height: 1352 pixels
    Resolution: 1500 Pixels/Inch

    Anyone have any advice as to why it seems to think this is low res? :) any help would be greatly appreciated!
    Cheers!

    EDIT: Oh! should also say the video I've put the thumbnail on is a "Scheduled" video...so I dont know whether that may be a factor as to why it isnt seeing it as hi-res or not :)

    I think I know what your problem might be. When a video is private, the thumbnail looks a lot more Low-res than it would be if it's public. That might be an effort on YouTube's part to save money and space. Since your video's scheduled, it's private until the actual time it goes public. So, when it goes public, your thumbnail should hopefully look a lot clearer.
