YouTube experiment: Video preview thumbnails coming to desktop

We are improving how you make video watching decisions by launching an experiment for video previews for desktop. A small (and growing) percentage of our users will be shown a 3-second preview of the video while browsing YouTube on desktop. The preview will play when you hover over the thumbnail, giving you better sense for what each video is about and making it easier to find the next great video to watch.

Where you will see the video previews:
* Home page
* Search results page
* Watch page
* Subscriptions tab
* Trending tab

Supported browsers:
* Chrome versions 32 and up
* Opera version 19 and up
