How to automate Video Players?
I would like automate video player(like youtube) functionlites, I want to check Volume, Maximizing and minimizing screen, Play and Pause video, Video Information & Meta data. Thses video players are developed in Flex & Flash Combination.
Is there any tool to support all these functions?
Thanks for your kind response.
Re: How to automate Video Players?
Hi - it is not easy and depends on your player. We use selenium as our player makes calls that we can intercept and check for those things.
The obvious limitation is that we can not check that the calls are actually doing anything, for example the volume call to make the volume mute might be called, but to the user it might actually still be noisy as anything.
What are you trying to test? For example are you trying to test that the vol control physically changes the sound levels and displays a graphically representation to the user, or are you trying to check that the calls that used to work (checked in manual testing) are still happening?
