Error when empty video manifest is provided
58 bytes, text/x-review-board-request
The video_urls attribute in MediaTestCase should be an empty list by default, but its default value is instead set to be a boolean: https://dxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/dom/media/test/external/external_media_harness/testcase.py#21 You can run the affected test-suite locally with |./mach external-media-tests|
(In reply to Maja Frydrychowicz (:maja_zf) from comment #0) > The video_urls attribute in MediaTestCase should be an empty list by > default Even better, let's raise a ValueError in the argument parser if the list of video urls is empty! https://dxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/dom/media/test/external/external_media_harness/runtests.py#34 (Leave the line is testcase.py as is; it prevents us from iterating tests on empty lists. However, that should really be reported as a busted test, not a failed test (hence raising a ValueError in the parser.)
I'm interested in working on this. Just want to check I've understood correctly: the only change needed is in runtests.py, to throw a ValueError if args.video_urls is empty? i.e. the type error in testcase.py is no longer actually the issue?

Correct. Raising a ValueError in runtests.py will be reported as a problem with the harness (or how it was called), which is preferable to addressing the issue in the testcase and reporting it as a test failure. We also don't want our test cases to be iterating on empty lists, so a fall-back value of False for self.video_urls is actually a good thing. Bugzilla tip: if your comment is a question, check the "Need more information from ___" box at the bottom of the bug form.

(In reply to Maja Frydrychowicz (:maja_zf) from comment #3) Thanks for confirming. I've made the simple change to the code, and hopefully submitted it for review using hg/MozReview correctly - just checking the "needs more information" box here in case I haven't done it right and you don't get notified for the review. Looking forward to your feedback!
