Is there any way to update a YouTube thumbnail?

I’ve had a good look and it doesn’t seem to be part of the YouTube node set, although i’m thinking maybe “Custom API Call” might do the trick as it’s certainly part of the YouTube API.

Is there any example workflows that have this working? (Apologies if there is, I had a good look and couldn’t find any!)

Many thanks!
