This demo introduces a wrapper used for automated measurements of mobile video streaming in the Android YouTube app. The difference to traditional measurement techniques is that the measurement is done with the native YouTube app as it is provided in the Google Play Store. In addition to bandwidth or packet loss detection, the QoE of the video stream can be measured and quantified. For this, the amount of quality changes, the current playtime, the buffer level, and statistics like video and audio format are captured. Thus, detailed relationships between network parameters and streaming behavior based on many factors can be detected within the native app available in the Play Store.
