Playback is a complex animal that is often overlooked or reduced in QA to simple cursory visibility checks. This talk will cover an overview of the architecture of live and on demand OTT video streaming (as well as a brief covering of broadcast for reference) and the testing challenges that come from this, as well as some tips on how best to approach the planning of the testing effort to maximize the efficacy of your playback testing.
