Thanks for your reply.
I'm not "public" so I wonder to whom it is available?

Who is "you Guys" ??? I for one haven't release any videos.
That will happen when the actual beta is released to any one who is willing to do beta testing.

If you have found it on Youtube or anywhere else for that matter it is a leaked version and not recommended to be used on anyone's system as it is pre beta ( alpha if you like ) and could cause many problems, as it's also a closed beta test we would be unable to offer any assistance for any issues that may arise from your use of it.
