"Thanks for your interest in Google Video...

Posted on Fri 03 February 2006

...Currently, the playback feature of Google Video isn't available in your country. We hope to make this feature available more widely in the future, and we really appreciate your patience."

Why? I can understand that some Hollywood studios want to control the countries where their videos are distributed (although I find it rather stupid as people go to BitTorrent to grab the movies instead), but what's the point of restricting access to Google's Tech Talks?

Via Ovidiu, which brought continuations to Cocoon years ago!

Update: Thomas has a cool hint to view the videos by using Google itself as a proxy ;-)

Update (14 feb '06): Ovidiu says the videos are now available in France and Germany. Thanks a lot! Need now to dedicate some my copious free time to watch these interesting talks. Oh, why do days only have 24 hours?
