  • Fix: iOS app cannot load single videos
  • Fix & Improvement: Some videos have incorrect output length That's a cool update! Some problems are so weired that it's almost impossible to localize them. Especially, if only one user has this problem and only when he uses a special programm, which made everything even more complicated. So, we adjusted many screws on our encoding server and voilá! In the end we not only solved the problem but optimized a lot of other things. 
  • Fix: Can' select asset from library

  • Fix & Improvement: Move UUID validation to schema level
  • Improvement: Replace JS calculations with media queries on watchlist cards
  • Fix: Auth directive with role parameter does not work correctly
  • Fix: First Name and Last Name input fields are not getting initialized properly

  • Improvement: lower threshold for sidechain compression
  • Improvement: update graphql error message name in useNotification hook
  • Improvement: Publish the Publisher That's a big update! There it is! A huge step for the new publisher is taken! This part of alugha was the last big chunk still written in angular, but now is working on react. Rewriting this bit we also rethought the whole concept an optimized the process based on what we learned so far. There are two functions missing in the new publisher, but as soon as their online, you'll be very happy about everything, like we are now!

Phase #1: Publishing an article, uploading a video or importing a video (currently from YouTube)

Phase #2: Thumbnail, title and video language  

Phase #3: Edit general information (valid for YouTube and also self hosted videos)

Phase #3a: Uploading a self hosted video you can place it directly on our Marketplace

  • Fix & Improvement: AI/STT → Send NATS reply instead of publishing on a fixed response subject
  • Fix & Improvement: Make graphql listen to NATS replies, instead of subjects
  • Fix: View documents set the ownerId to the track owner

14 September 2020

    • Improvement: As alugha I want to check on used S2T minutes
    • Fix & Improvement: Marketplace crashes when trying to query for asset that has a waveform representation
    • Improvement: Remove "Draft" from video states
    • Improvement: As a user, I want a video to start in Full HD and then adapt to my bandwidth That's a cool update! Our player works perfectly in adaptive streaming. Up to this update, we started videos with 360p and after a few seconds raised the video quality up to 2k depending on the stats of the user. For some time now, we collect much less user data and can only save them if the user agrees to the cookie settings. But to offer the best service also to those users who don't accept the cookies, we now do a quick performance check at the beginning of every video and start it directly in the best possible video quality. 
    • Fix: Add enum for delete asset errors
    • Fix: Fix login issues
    • Fix: Fix typo in library
    • Fix: Downloadassetbutton chokes on library picked assets
    • Improvement: As a user, I want to change the video playback rate in the player That's a big update! User kept asking us if we couldn't offer the possibility to change the playing speed of a video. Well, sure... we can! And we did - you can choose between these playing speeds: 0,25x - 0,5x - 0,75x - 1x - 1,25x - 1,5x - 1,75x - 2x.

 

07 September 2020

      • Improvement: Investigate dropping the mp3 encoder completely and only use Flac That's a cool update! The first version of the dubbr used flac and mp3 file formats. Nowadays, all relevant browser can handle flac files, so we dismissed mp3 formats saving a lot of storage space (and we love that!) and adding some more performance to the current dubbr.
      • Remove translator job offers
      • Fix: Let dubbr onboarding use linker instead of relative url
      • Improvement: Product pages call-to-action is confusing users
      • Fix & Improvement: Added note for delete asset and refactore component
      • Fix: Fix broken watchlist cards on alucation
      • Improvement: As an alugha user, I want to be able to download track audio That's a cool update! This week is another highlight. Your audio file is final with all segments, exported and available on your multilingual video. But you want to use the audio file also elsewhere. Now you can download your audio files on your computer as AAC(LC) with 48kHz samplerate and variable bit rate. 
      • Improvement: Make default track state public

31 August 2020

      • Improvement: Embed code doesn't contain the autoplay attribute That's a cool update! It was about time! Finally, we embeded videos can start automatically. You've asked for it... again and again... so we tought, well yeah, that's cool, let's do it... and here it is!

 

      • Improvement: Split video page tabs into separate chunks That's a cool update! Doesn't sound that spectacular... but it is. The performance is very important to us and in this point we want to be one step ahead of other websites. Therefore, it sometimes is necessary to optimize "old" code and check it again. Thanks to the splitting we were able to improve SVP performance by 5 points (PageSpeed). 
      • Improvement & Fix: Prevent alugha.com from being embedded in an iframe unless it's the alugha player
      • Improvement: Languages not included in defaultLangCodes aren't getting considered at all That's a cool update! Another one? Really? Yes! We've extended our language codes once again and now there are many more ISO langugage codes available for you.
      • Fix: Add firstVideoHref on uni-react
      • Improvement & Fix: Some video queries show removed videos That's a cool update! The video overview hasn't been as performant as we wanted it to be. It took us some time to localize the problem, but we did it and fixed it. On top, we now use less server and GraphQL capacity which improves the performance of our website even more. 
      • Improvement: Add Mareike to team page. WELCOME!
      • Improvement: enhanceDowngradeIntent must not be relative to current day
      • Improvement: Improve contact form traceability
      • Improvement: Do not set cookies and local storage until user consented That's a big update! Again and again we read how much Google and Facebook deliberately abuse our data. Often it is not even wanted by the user, but he just doesn't understand what is happening in the background. "Don't be Evil" was once the guideline of Google. Today, we could describe our guideline something like this: Don't be "GooBook". From now on we will not activate cookies or the local storage in the player until the user really agrees. And even there, we do not use any tools or " Pixel" from Google or Facebook. We store on our own servers and do not give your data to anyone! This also applies to the embedded player.
      • Improvement & Fix: Sounds are not updating when moving segments while playing
      • Improvement: Put the waveforms into objectStorage and load them as asset representations That's a big update! These last two improvements are quite something and are the next step for the upcoming major update for the dubbr. You can now easily move recorded segments within the timeline, even when the video is running. The video will then stop and as soon as the element is moved, the video will continue exactly at that position. Oh, and btw... We have improved the performance of the dubbr yet again with this update. 

24 August 2020

      • Improvement: Finally our entire contact section moved from angular to react. 
      • Improvement: Improve video overview for RTL That's a cool update! We're international and many of our users speak Arabic. RTL (right to left) is therefore something important for us. With this update we optimized our latest video overview. 
      • ix: dubbr → When coming from archive or single video page, the video in dubbr can't be started
      • Improvement: Get a warning for invalid file format in the publisher and marketplace
      • FIx and Improvement: dubbr->Recording cache items don't get purged when new recording exists
      • Improvement: dubbr → Segment cue timing offset is not labeled
      • Fix: Fix contact form colors
      • Improvement and Fix: Tree shaking doesn't work properly, causing huge vendor chunks That's a big update! Over time our services and pages have grown larger. At some point it's time to optimize the code behind it. By reducing the amout of code, we reduced the loading time of our website significantly. But there is still room for improvement...
      • Fix: dubbr → subtitle segment creation is broken
      • Improvement: Add autoplay and watchlist options to embed video settings That's a big update! Wait a moment! What? That sounds cool! You are already able to embed your video where ever you want. Then we also added the possibility for you to decide who can embed your videos elsewhere. Next, we enabled personalizing the player with your own color and branding... but! This was only true for one video so far! From now on you can set this settings for whole watchlists and embed these. You can learn how this works here: https://support.alugha.com/help/en-us/3/108

 

17 August 2020

      • Improvement: Finally our entire press section moved from angular to react. 
      • Improvement: As a dubbr user I want to have more control over the dubbing intensity before exporting &
      • Improvement: add ducking intensity parameter to finishTrackJob &
      • Improvement: Expose ducking intensity slider

That's a big update! Our ducking has been an issue for some time now. We optimized the code several times, but in the end you need the option to adjust your ducking intensity individually for an excellent result. Therefore, we now have an intensity ratio of 1:20 -> 0% == 1:20 and 100% == 20:20. Enjoy!

      • Improvement: Put segment meta assets into the asset collection That's a cool update! Next big step for improving the dubbr to be ready for the next really bug update for you guys! We are in the middle of preparing the dubbr to store data differently. 
      • Fix: STT Modal needs text content
      • Improvement: As an alugha user I want to see the most recent videos of a category when visiting the video overview
      • Improvement: As a dubbr user I want to read all language names in my UI language That's a cool update!  From now on you can choose your language in YOUR language. This means if you're looking for Russian, you don't need to know how "Russian" is written in Russian language. 
      • Fix: Videos by category - endpoint does not check if video has playable tracks
      • Fix: dubbr-> Segment meta are still active while the track is flagged for removal
      • Fix: flexbox based modal styles are broken
      • Improvement: Player → Hide tour in embedded player if alugha branding is disabled
      • Fix: Player → Ensure tooltips do not move outside the player
      • Improvement: Player → New language menu design

That's a cool update! We changed the menu completely. Now you can see with only one click which languages are available for audio and subtitles. Both are scrollable individually using mouse or keyboard. 

Ready for the gigantic stuff!?!?

We always want to reach the people that normally don't have access to specific things. This is why we started to make the player controlable with the keyboard (you can read more here). Now this is where we are: 

      1. The Basics: Semantic accessibility optimizations: attributes and correct tags
      2. The next step to "communicate" with the whole website using the keyboard: Improved keyboard control and focus management
      3. The real game: Optimize player and related video cards for screen readers.

Yes... you read correctly! Screenreader and complete controle over the player with the screenreader and your keyboard. We are working on covering the WCAG standard at alugha. However, so far, you can manage a huge part of alugha using a screenreader and your keyboard.

      • Improvement: Auto segmentation That's a big update!  It wouldn't be alugha, if we didn't have even more for you. We took another step further and we'll listen to your video. The segments are created automatically including punctuation. You just need to the finishing touch. With this update we reduce your workflow by about 50-60 % ! That's awesome.

Recordings are stored directly in the object storage and subscriptions are more stable. Database and segmenting have been reprogrammed to prepare everything for the next step in which new functions will be added to the dubbr.

      • Fix: Resolved an issue where the user's plan does not update immediately after the successful redemption of an AppSumo code. The quota (i.e. streaming, upload and encoding minutes) do also update immediately now.

For that you can pin the main track at the top and customize the timeline view in the dubbr to your own needs with certain key combinations.
      • Improvement: Take quotaBoost into account That's a big update! Yeah, one more! It is now possible for users to "top up" individual quotas individually.

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!

      • Fix: Viewing watchlist videos results in unexpectedly high CPU usage and may even freeze the tab.

      • 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 (https://alugha.com/all). 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.

      • 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.

We are optimizing this process contanstly.

      • 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

      • Implement GQL mutation for (re)encoding an asset That's a cool update! You might not really notice but we are thrilled!

Now it's just a push of a button.
