One of the wonderful things about the internet is the ability to share content instantly with people around the world, but relying on subtitles instead of multilingual YouTube videos can be frustrating. A new venture by a father and son team based out of Germany wants to change this. Alugha hopes to take internet videos to the next level by using a browser plugin allowing you to listen in your native language.
The Alugha plugin would provide alternative language tracks for existing videos. By attaching multiple audio tracks to a single video, content creators can have multilingual YouTube videos without having to upload different videos for different audiences. Thanks to the work of Niklas and Bernd Korz, one can simply select their language from a drop-down list.
