Yes, you've uploaded the module to the correct location (otherwise you wouldn't have been able to install it).

Failure to generate thumbnails could theoretically be caused by a number of different configuration problems, but the most common would probably be either:

  • incorrect permissions on sites/default/files (or a subfolder)
  • something blocking the outgoing request to download the thumbnail from YouTube's servers.

Check your server logs and Drupal's watchdog for errors, if there are none you'll probably need to step through the code to find out exactly where and why it's failing.
