Nowadays, video streaming is one of the most used technologies on the internet, from marketing campaigns, live event transmissions, tutorials, etc. When implementing a video streaming service, its quality is of increasing importance. Any service crashes, long buffering periods, and such will drive users away and hurt your brand reputation. That's why it's so important to test these services under load, in order to avoid a major disappointment - like that of the Game of Thrones finale.
In this meetup, we’ll cover how to use open source tools to evaluate the performance of a video streaming platform in order ensure that users will get the best possible experience, no matter if it's thousands or millions of users from around the world. We’ll also share some tips and best practices when testing such services.
