NeoLoad Video Solution

Real-time entertainment (video/audio) accounts for 62% of total broadband traffic and performance testing is critical to ensure the smooth experience required by users. But popular protocols like HTTP adaptive streaming are extremely complex, making it difficult to simulate realistically. With NeoLoad you can:

  • Load test any streaming technology: progressive download, adaptive bitrate streaming (MPEG-DASH, Adobe Dynamic streaming for Flash, Apple HTTP Live Streaming, Microsoft Smooth Streaming etc)
  • Randomly tap into the entire catalog of content to assess performance of a website
  • Simulate the impact of concurrent services during media streaming (chat or other actions users may launch while watching a video)

More Flexible

Test virtually any custom data stream over HTTP

Extensions Handling Custom Data Format Plugin

Testing in extreme conditions, away from standards? With NeoLoad 4.2 you can now record, variabilize and replay any “non-standard” traffic for any custom data stream over HTTP.

New Collaboration Module

From individual productivity to team productivity: leverage performance testing best practices and assets at the team level and even build a performance testing CoE if you want to. Beyond design and results, all NeoLoad objects and concepts can now be shared among team members: scenarios, populations, load generators, and monitoring settings.

CI Jenkins Plugin (Open Source)

NeoLoad 4.2 enables testers to integrate with Jenkins, the award winning open-source Continuous Integration software (and Hudson).

NeoLoad can generate SLA-focused reports in the JUnit format for easy integration with any Continuous Integration Server.
