Update: This issue has now been resolved

A grayed out “Upload thumbnail” button. After refreshing and trying again, you ask yourself
Why I am unable to add custom thumbnails even after verifying my YouTube channel?
There is a simple solution for this. Open the console on your browser (usually by pressing ctrl + Shift + J” and click console. You will be seeing something like this :
Click the clear button near the top button.
Now the console output will be deleted. Type the following in the console window:
$('ytcp-thumbnails-compact-editor-uploader').featureDisabled = false
Now, check the “Upload thumbnail” button. It will be enabled.
