Install alugha – our download section is finally online!

After we have could happily read quite a lot about alugha in the press, and after we also wrote a lot about our small genius tool ourselves and after the big update of our webpage (News), it’s now time, that you install and enjoy it.

Therefore we especially created a download-section where you find a lot to install. Nothing more to say for now, just visit and install!

Public Beta is running and we already get first fixes!


Our Public Beta is hardly running, there is already the first update. With version 1.0.4 we rectified a few important points.

  • If you were watching a YouTube video middle-sized and the following video was an alugha video, this has been resized to small screen. Changing then again to a YouTube video, the chosen screensize had not been kept. This setting is now handed for- and backwords with our new update and therefore the handling has been improved.

alugha chrome’s into the wide world

24 Months – 2 Years – This is exactly when the idea of alugha was born. If you look at alugha as if it is a small village you can say that we constantly worked on the planning, while we started building the foundations, measured land, build houses and gardens. The drainage, the streets, the shops…. The idea, the zoning and the city plan were converted into the village. Most of what’s needed has been finished. So we could already publish our Standalone-Player for you some time ago. Publishing videos, which have been improved with alugha, can already be shown to the audience on websites.

alugha extension – beta we are almost there

And we carry on with news this week! During the last weeks we focussed on our player, now it was time to actualise the extension and implement further updates. So far it could happen that YouTube ignored the requests when making a video change. If you wanted to watch a video off a playlist it could have been possible that they did not change. This is now resolved.

Hyperlinks and other updates at the start of the week

This week starts straight away with a new update for you! Whilst one is immediately visible and usable for you, the other one will be brighten up the “background”. Let’s start with the obvious. So far hyperlinks haven’t been shown as such when using alugha. If a text contained a Hyperlink (link to a different website), this was just shown as plain text. We could rectify this error with the last update.

alugha with own iOS player for iPad and iPhone

After we have exhausted the last few weeks to get alugha on all desktop browsers to work correctly, we also were working parallel to it eradicate the problems with mobile devices. The problem here is that alugha does not work on mobile browsers, as these simply can not deliver some very important functions . The only way to handle this is an app for those platforms.

Big update for the alugha player

It took us a while till we were able to publish this – very pleasing – status. But finally, we made it! After a lot of work on the optimization and the “fight” against all browser specific peculiarities we made it for the CeBIT… on time! Now our alugha player is supporting a lot of browsers on different operating systems.
