Same url giving different languages

A web rule is that the same url shouldn’t provide different contents, even the same thing in different languages. To do so, the locale should be in the url. However, some websites ignore that rule, youtube for instance.
So I’d like to understand a few things about that :

  • are there consequences if we ignore that rule for translation ? (like SEO wise)
  • does youtube do something to avoid these consequences ?

To give a context, I don’t really want to use different urls, I’d rather use the header Accept-language, or a user setting if existing, I’m using symfony.

Thank you
