As many of you know, I'm a huge fan of Automated Testing.
I'm constantly trying to find ways to apply the latest technologies to our testing scripts.
Because I work for Airbnb, I need to make sure that everything works great not just in Chrome, but in a whole bunch of browsers.
We run our tests in a cross-browser cloud infrastructure, this means that debugging isn't as straightforward as it would be on my local machine.
Sometimes, the detailed logs were simply not enough, I needed to see what went wrong and I had to wait for the video recording that I would receive at the end of the test.
Like other companies out there, We're using Endtest.
A few days ago, they added the functionality for Live Video for the test runs. They managed to come up with something I didn't even knew I want.
I'm still baffled by how they did it.
What kind of compression are they using?
The live stream from Endtest is crystal clear and it loads pretty fast.
