Well, if I understand correctly STB tester captures video only through HDMI- is your app and device capable of that ?

If yes than you could probably ignore the remote control part of the tester or send dummy commands, then just use the analyzed video results in parallel to appium.


Here's an example of integrating stb-tester and Selenium: Add visual verification to your Selenium tests with stb-tester. Both Selenium and Appium use Webdriver to interact with the device under test, so you may find this article useful.

You say you're trying to automate testing of a mobile app that is video based. You may find our article Testing Video Playback on Mobile Devices relevant.
