YouTube gives a very limited selection of frames from which to choose. Is there a way to manually assign a frame (or even a separate still image?)

All I've found is the hack of inserting a frame at the center of the video. It's so short that viewers don't see it, but one of the YouTube options is the frame that's at the exact center of the timeline.

If not on YouTube, is there another video hosting site that gives you more flexibility in this?

Thanks
Why, yes. I do need new pictures. Why do you ask?

Vimeo allows you to upload any picture you want or choose one from your video.

I uploaded the picture for this video.

They also have a far better picture and sound quality.

Another vote for vimeo. I use vimeo on my site http://www.BCmagician.com.

I also recently switched to Vimeo pro for their enhanced features which include: removal of vimeo logo, embedded HD video on by default, end of video options, and the biggest bonus: use of their "universal player" so that the video will play on most devices and browsers.
