I can confirm what you are seeing on some of your videos.


You can see the distortion on the 2nd and 3rd vid still images clearly.

This is embedded code from YouTube so I went digging into the code generated by the embedded code.

What I found is that YT produced an image < https://i.ytimg.com/vi/ajV_Vf8fRv8/sddefault.jpg > that has distortion on the right side.


I'd first suggest trying to resolve the issue on the YT side of things.

My guess is the standard definition version of the thumbnail image is getting distorted.

What is apparently the hq version < https://i.ytimg.com/vi/ajV_Vf8fRv8/hqdefault.jpg > is apparently fine.


The first thing you could try is just redo the thumbnail step and see if things are different.

After that I'd be tempted to experiment. If the thumbnail is a still from the vid, choose a different frame of the vid. A frame or two ahead or back. If that doesn't do it find an alternate image if possible.

I've had some previous experience with YT and how it distorts vids in ways that are undesirable. Understandable but not desirable for certain use cases. I'm not surprised that the same is happening with thumbnails.
