Introducing: Our Brand New Dashboard

We’ve been working hard these past two months, ever since we got our previous release out the door. This time, we invested a lot of time and thought on the small items. And one big item as well. All over the service, you’ll notice some slight changes to the UI. This is an ongoing process to […]

WebRTC Test Automation and where it fits in your roadmap

I see mixed signals about the popularity and acceptance of test automation. It is doubly so when testing WebRTC. Time to consider some serious WebRTC test automation. In favor of automation A tester automated his job for 6 years – most probably a hoax, but one that rings partially true. The moral of the story is simple – […]

testRTC Update: May 2016

Yesterday, we released our latest update to testRTC. This new version started with the intent to “just replace backend tables” and grew from there due to the usual feature creep. Wanting to serve the needs of our customers does that to us. Anyway, here’s what you should expect from this updated version: Improved backend tables. We’ve rewritten our […]

Use our Monitor During Development to Flush Out Your Nastiest WebRTC Bugs

Things break. Unexpectedly. All the time. One thing we noticed recently is the a customer or two of ours decided to use our monitoring service in their staging versions or during development – and not only on their production system. So I wanted to share this technique here. First off, let me explain how the testRTC […]

Meet us at WebRTC Global Summit

Next week, I will be presenting at WebRTC Global Summit in London. WebRTC Global Summit is one of the main European events that are focused around WebRTC. This time around, the event is split into three separate tracks: Developer track, taking place on April 11, where I will be speaking about video codecs in WebRTC and chairing the […]

See you at Kranky Geek India

This week, I am heading to Kranky Geek India. The event takes place on the 19th of March in Bengaluru with a great cadre of speakers – both local to India and those who are traveling especially for this (like me). As an organizer of this event, it is important for me that it turns […]

Why we are Using Real Browsers to Test WebRTC Services?

The most important decision we made was one that took place before testRTC became a company. It was the decision to use a web browser as the agent/probe for our service instead of building something on top of WebRTC directly or god forbid GStreamer. Here are a few things we can do because we use […]

How Different WebRTC Multiparty Video Conferencing Technologies Look Like on the Wire

MCU, SFU, Mesh – what do they really mean? We decided to take all these techniques to a spin to see what goes on on the network. To that end, we used some simple test scripts in testRTC and handpicked a service that uses each of these techniques: For mesh we used appear.in For SFU we used […]

How to make sure you have WebRTC incoming audio using testRTC

I hear this one far too many times: How can I make sure there’s incoming audio? We had this issue a few weeks/months ago, where sessions got connected in our WebRTC service, but there was no incoming audio. Can testRTC alert me of such a situation? Looking for your WebRTC inocming audio? testRTC can do just that […]

The day Talky and Jitsi failed – and why end-to-end monitoring is critical

It was a bad day for me. 14 January 2016. I had a demo to show to a customer of testRTC. Up until that point, the demos we’ve shown potential customers were focused on Jitsi or Talky (depending on who did the demo). There were a couple of reasons for picking these services for our […]
