It would be nice to have the playback performance tests running against Chromium to get comparison numbers with Firefox on desktop and mobile.

Given that also Chrome/Chromium has blocking auto-play turned on, we will have to run those tests muted.

We could already get the tests enabled by specifying the same test_url as for android, or we wait until bug 1554966 has been done, so we know if we have to run with audio enabled.

Bugbug thinks this bug is a enhancement, but please change it back in case of error.

:jmaher do you have any concerns over turning on additional tests for Chromium? We could consider running these once/week.

a few jobs once/week isn't going to kill things- especially on a weekend :)

Hi Dave,

I did several tests locally using a local server and the repository from
I tested on both branches master and raptor.

The tests are running ok on Chrome but is a perma fail on Chromium.

A few more details for Chrome:

Let's switch this to Chrome then as that's our preferred target anyway. We'll just need to depend on Greg's work in bug 1563708.

Hi Dave,

I did a git bisection locally for the youtube playback repo:
to find what is causing the permanent failures on Chrome, but i didn't find any issues with the tests.
And it seems that what we have running on the production server ( has some issues.
Henrik asked Tarek to bring up the server that ran a while back at
to be able to do that bisection and run on the server not on localhost.

From experience, mentions in Phabricator rarely get the attention of the person. It's best to use needinfo in bugzilla. Tarek: could you take a look over the comment from Henrik in

Flags: needinfo?(tarek)

Thanks Dave, sorry for not answering in phab. I have restarted the youtube dev instance I had (luckily I did not erase it!) is back online

@marauder let me know if I can be of further assistance - I can give you access to that dev box if you need.

If you can't reach the URL (dns just changed) replace the domain by

Hei Tarek,

I can access that URL but i will also need that dev box credentials to jump on raptor branch and check each commit to see which one caused the permanent failures on Chrome.

Results are totally worse for Chrome on Mac:,2189198,1,10&series=mozilla-central,2054686,1,10&timerange=86400

I assume that this might be the same problem with the Mac Minis and Firefox. I don't have that other bug handy. Do you have? Might be good to add this info over there.

How do the other platforms compare with Firefox?
