I would have loved to be able to watch this video but, unfortunately, it was not subtitled. Please consider having the videos subtitled in order to provide access to all who wish to view the video.

@Sandra - I completely agree with you, its much easier to understand the speakers if subtitles are available. Let me check what we can do about this asap.

Let me stress that we are also involved in the Translectures project (http://www.translectures.eu/) which will in the future enable us to automatically produce subtitles.

I also think it would be great to have subtitles, and transcripts for quick reference.
