Right, does that mean we can't get it? Is it definitely true that one can't just download the new client and upload videos stored on one's normal harddrive and see the same effect? Did anyone try that?

You still use Mac 10.4?

Note that what you are downloading from the forum thread is an unstable beta meant for test purposes. The beta client should work on Mac OS 10.5 and up. Works on my Lion (10.7.2) just fine.

Lion = 10.7
Snow Leopard = 10.6
Leopard = 10.5

(To check your Mac version, go to the apple button at the top left, click on About This Mac.)
