How do you test video sites like YouTube and Netflix?
When it comes to video streaming, we focus on the quality of experience. This means that we're looking for a stable connection. We test for this by simulating what it would be like for you to stream a constant bitrate video from the web over TCP. Our tests look at the initial time it takes for the video to buffer, the number of buffer underruns and the total time for buffer delays.
We also provide tests for these main content providers: Netflix, YouTube and BBC iPlayer because we know how important those series and cat videos on YouTube really are to you at the end of a long day!
We're looking to add more here as well - Hulu and Amazon are next but keep your eyes peeled for many more!
