It would be great if the ability to set a custom cover for a channel was there. Picking up an image from a video of the channel is not the ideal at all times. The thumbnail of videos can be unique to the video while a channel cover should collectively represent the content of the channel.

I COMPLETELY agree with this comment, very similar to my post in the forum about this issue.

I already had images assigned to my videos, so I had to replace one of the video images with the new channel image and apply it.  Then I went back and updated the video image to the desired image and the Channel image that I previously selected did remain in tact.

 

I'd suggest also adding the ability to swap the channel image from the channel edit screen as well, to make it a bit more direct if a user would like a unique image for the channel vs. selecting one of the video images.

Exactly. I too noticed that it stays the same. Nevertheless, it is not how end users want to work it.

We are on it! Will keep you all posted.

We are rolling this out starting this week. By next week most of you will be able to do this. Thanks for the feedback.

This just rolled out to all users. We will have a blog on this soon with more details. On any channel, click on "..." and select "upload custom thumbnail". You can also do this from Edit channel experience.
