Generative Artificial Intelligence (AI) is revolutionizing various aspects of technology, and one exciting development is the ability to dub videos in different languages. This opens up possibilities for content creators to reach a wider audience. In June, YouTube announced its integration with Aloud’s AI technology, allowing creators to have multilingual versions of their videos. Recently, oncelabs, an AI voice generation company, launched its own dubbing tool that is compatible with 29 languages.
Joining the race to provide this innovative solution is Lipdub, a company that specializes in AI-powered video editing tools. Lipdub’s main application enables users to edit videos using AI tools, including AI Lipdub, which can modify lip movements during post-production based on generated transcriptions. What sets Lipdub apart is its availability in the Apple App Store, allowing users to dub videos in 27 languages and counting. Moreover, the app supports translation into specific slangs, further enhancing its versatility.
Currently, Lipdub supports videos up to one minute long with a single person speaking. Users can directly share the results on social networks, targeting a larger audience by providing videos in different languages. The App Store description explains that Lipdub uses cutting-edge technology to change the speaker’s voice and lip movements like they are speaking in a completely different language, helping to break language barriers and reach new global audiences.
However, it is worth noting that Lipdub’s dubbing capabilities are not flawless. There are occasional synchronization issues between lip movements and the selected language. Nevertheless, as the technology advances, these minor setbacks are expected to be resolved, and the application will continue to improve. Currently, Lipdub can be downloaded for free, promising even better features in future updates.
Generative AI has paved the way for exciting developments in video dubbing, offering possibilities to connect with global audiences. With platforms like YouTube and innovative tools like Lipdub, creators can expand their reach, making their content accessible in different languages. This technological advancement brings us one step closer to a truly globalized world, where language is no longer a barrier to communication and understanding.
