Google Video will allow preview

Seem the new Google Video Beta, who should be call Google VideoTranscript for now, will add preview of video soon if I understand the three last lines of the Robots.txt file at Google :
  • Disallow: /videosearch?
  • Disallow: /videopreview?
  • Disallow: /videoprograminfo?

Eric, the lines in the robots.txt are from existing URLs of the program (those not containing any actual video preview yet). The "videopreview" URL just shows thumbnails.

Yes that why I use the word "will". In the Help page they also give a clue on the upcoming service :

Can I play the videos that Google Video finds?
Not yet, but stay tuned...
