How should I approach the task of constructing automation to test a video platform?

For example, how does YouTube tests their video editor. Can this even be done with automation? Are there existing tools to achieve this or do I need to write it from scratch?

Thank you.

  • I have good experience with automation for enterprise software like routers and storage devices, but I've never had a chance to test video editing platforms. How should one start designing an automation platform to test the service from a user's point of view and verify the video is created correctly? Are there any existing tools? – thedp Nov 17 '15 at 19:01
  • There are lots of criteria you could test such a software against. One of them is performance: sqa.stackexchange.com/questions/12815/…. – dzieciou Nov 17 '15 at 19:26
  • @dzieciou That's a good point. But I'm more concerned with the video content being correct. – thedp Nov 17 '15 at 20:05
