29. June 2020

  • Improvement: Implement alucation-Section in VideoOverview
  • Fix: If the last article of a page is removed in the organizer, the reloading gets stuck
  • Use pagination in videoOverview sections
    That's a big update! We have added "Pagination" for each category on the new videos page. Now you can browse easily through many videos on one page. We have also paid a lot of attention to performance.
  • Fix: 'id' must be provided to format a message (CategorySelection)
  • Improvement: Modify videosByCategory & recommendedVideos query to make it work with pagination
  • Improvement: Include offset in videos query to make pagination work
  • Fix: User has no access to video thumbnail and background (image)
  • Improvement: Update SB/Influencer/Enterprise streaming minutes
    That's a big update! We have made a lot of adjustments and put the whole machinery in motion to make this update possible. There are only three numbers listed at the end, but they are very impressive. We had to optimize a lot in the background so that we could keep the costs under control despite the massive increase. Streaming is now much more appealing. Small business has increased from 5,000 minutes to 15,000 streaming minutes, Influencer from 40,000 to 65,000, and Enterprise even from 100,000 to 400,000 minutes. Now that's something!
  • Improvement: Add admin reencode buttons for video & (audio) track

22. June 2020

  • Improvement: Streaming, storage, and encoding minutes were not clearly explained. We have now split them up in backend/payment.
  • Improvement: The status of a video and of an audio track had the same label. We have now changed the status of audio.
  • Fix: FeaturedBanner: Something went wrong by changing the window-size.
  • Improvement: Redesign of the VideoInfoCards
  • Fix: finishTrack job must not use linked asset as a target
  • Fix: Subtitle-only tracks sometimes show up in audio selection
  • Fix: SRT import dialog is too large on Safari
  • Improvement: Implement category-Sections in videoOverview
    That's a big update! We get more and more producers, users, and videos. So far, we have simply always shown the latest videos that have at least two languages in the video overview. Additionally, we have selected a few categories we provide. After some development time, we have taken the next big step towards offering a Video Hosting Consuming platform. From now on, we will display the latest videos from each category.
  • Improvement: Convert TOS to React
  • Fix: Viewing watchlist videos results in unexpectedly high CPU usage and may even freeze the tab.

16. June 2020

  • Fix: Don't crash when video asset has no image representation
  • Add Ian on team page
  • Fix: Lower number of tracks in sitemap
  • Add default alugha license
  • As an alugha admin, I want to mark a video an alucation video
    That's a cool update! More and more video producers and tutors are discovering the diverse possibilities on alugha. Multilingual education is unique! From now on, we can define which videos are displayed in our overview and therefore we can support our producers more efficiently. 
  • As a user I want to be informed about alughas products
    That's a cool update! alugha has a lot to offer, and the beautiful thing about this is our modular concept. Every user can pick the cherries he or she needs. Our product pages will explain all the benefits to you. 
  • As a user, I want to be able to upload an alternate default language audio asset
    That's a big update! Imagine you've uploaded a video with audio to alugha, but later you get an even better audio recording for that video - what now? Upload the video again and lose the generated clicks on it? No! You now can update your default audio track and upload better quality if need be. 
  • Implement recommended videos
    That's a big update! Oh, wow! That's two big updates in one! Our user number is growing. With over 5.5 million returning users watching about 8 minutes of video material at each visit that's quite a lot of traffic. But we have also more producers on our website and therefore more videos to watch. So far, the videos shown to the user were random. But that's not good. You want to watch videos that match your interests! Sounds easy but it's quite tricky to implement. However, we finally managed it and are proud to present the slider on top of the page where you'll find six interesting videos. 

08. June 2020

  • Add navigation on landing page
  • Create Video Overview Banner
    That's a cool update! So far, most alughans landed directly on a single video page. That's why our video overview was quite simple ( As our number of videos is growing, we started designing them more intuitive. Beginning with a banner on top in which we can promote the very special videos.  
  • Add dubbr onboarding
    That's a cool update! The dubbr is our flag ship and has many features. However, feedback from users has been, that the first step aren't very clear. That's why we started implementing a tour on those pages. 
  • Add translations & team members
  • Fix: Disable Feedback Widgets on small screens
  • Fix: Only account for public tracks when checking for maxTracks while setting a state to public
  • Fix: Fix dubbr buttons

02. June 2020

  • Migrate the press resources page from legacy-web
  • Add dynamic link for video:content_loc in sitemap
    That's a cool update! In regard to SEO we are already quite good equipped. For every language we create an own listing for the search engines meaning that a video with five languages tracks is found as five videos - one video for each language. We are optimizing this process contanstly. 
  • Split AssetContentMobile in different files

  • Fix: Window is not defined in the Upload/Marktpalce for Thumbnails and background
  • Fetch all possible resolutions from YouTube
    That's a big update! alugha aims to optimize everything and save ressoureces where ever possible. So far, you could merge your videos from YouTube to alugha and turn them multilingual. Therefore, we used the highest available resolution of the video and encoded it. This is an unnecessary step in the process using up a lot of computing power and energie. After all, YouTube had already done it. If you verified your alugha account with your YouTube account and you want to merge your videos to alugha, it will cost you nothing. We simply transfer your videos on our alugha server. 
  • Fix: Linked to about:blank for click on library card
