"A impossibilidade em Matemática tem exercido um fascínio sobre os matemáticos e uma curiosidade enorme entre os que se designam como não-matemáticos.

Na Grécia antiga, os matemáticos de então resolveram inúmeros problemas geométricos com raciocínios, cuja sofisticação e elegância ainda hoje impressionam quem os estuda... mas três problemas resistiram aos métodos mais sofisticados dos matemáticos mais capazes – a quadratura do círculo, a duplicação do cubo e a trisecção do ângulo. E assim continuaram durante vários séculos..."

Subtitle, Caption and Translate Any Video with Amara / Universal Subtitles

Robin Good: Amara / Universal Subtitles is a free web-based service that allows anyone to easily sub-title and add captions to any video. 

 

As long as you have a URL of a published video, Amara makes it very easy to caption it. The clip may be on a video sharing site or embedded in custom video player and Amara can still get to it.

 

Amara is made up of three main parts:

 

a) A subtitle creation and viewing tool (aka the widget)


b) A collaborative subtitling website

 

c) An open protocol for subtitle search/delivery

 

All tools inside Amara are free and open-source.

 

Supported video players and video sharing sites include:

 

Flowplayer JW Player Firefox native player Chrome native player
  YouTube Vimeo Dailymotion blip.tv

 

See examples: http://www.universalsubtitles.org/en/videos/watch/ ;
