Video Creation not working
Hi,

WPT version: 2.11.
OS : Win Server 2008 R2 standard (64 bit).
ffmpeg bin path added to system environment variables.
ffmpeg version N-54802-gfc6de70
built on Jul 18 2013 18:07:01 with gcc 4.7.3 (GCC)

Avisynth 2.5 installed from the wpt-agent folder.

Running wptdriver agents and the actual Server locally.
Normal browsers' tests are working fine for Chrome, Safari (windows), Firefox, IE 10.

Ran both the wptdriver and URLBlast and then started testing.
The Visual comparison (or the video comparision) is working as expected when i enter the 2 URLs to compare
it closes my current browser and the wptdriver opens the sites in Chrome for testing) and when i check the Results
TAB i can see the film strip but when i click on create video the message is ->
Your Video will be available Shortly, Please wait ...

URLblast.ini:

[Configuration]
Startup Delay=30
Log File=E:\software\wpt-agent\urlblast
Timeout=120

basically the jobs were not being collected by the urlBlast.
Uncommenting the above line and restarting the urlBlast
fixed the issue.

Thanks.

RE: Video Creation not working
urlblast needs to connect to the server even if it's to a bogus or hidden location. Otherwise it won't pull the video rendering tasks.

RE: Video Creation not working
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
EDIT: Solved the issue!

Found out that the new /dat folder needs to be owned by the apache user! I ran "chown apache:apache dat" (from inside the wpt web folder) and that solved it!
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


I have a similar issue (i think) ...

i recently upgraded IE on our agents to IE11 and switched to using wptdriver exclusively ... i also upgraded WPT and the agents to the latest version (2.14, 2.14.0.181 and 2.14.0.378) ...

after all this, the video compare feature (.../video/compare.php) started producing nothing but a blank screen.

As suggested by Pat, i turned on activated urlblast on all the agents and pointed them at a bogus location. Here is urlblast.ini:

[Configuration]
Startup Delay=1
Log File=c:\webpagetest\logs
Timeout=60
use current account=1

; Where to get work from
Url Files Url=http://<wpt server>/work/
Location=P3_IE8
Location Key=keyP3_IE8

I also noticed that i'm not getting anything in the specified log path (c:\webpagetest\logs) ... am i supposed to?

just to be complete, here is my locations.ini:

[locations]
1=P3
2=C1
default=P3

[P3]
1=P3_wptdriver
2=P3_IE9
label="Phoenix P3"
lat=33.4373028
lng=-112.0552515

[P3_wptdriver]
browser=IE11,Chrome,Firefox
label="Phoenix P3"
connectivity=LAN
key=keyP3_wpt

[P3_IE9]
browser=IE9
label="P3-IE9"
connectivity=LAN
key=keyP3_IE9

and here is wptdriver.ini:

[WebPagetest]
url=http://<wpt server>/
location=P3_wptdriver
browser=IE11
key=keyP3_wpt
;Automatically install and update support software (Flash, Silverlight, etc)
software=http://www.webpagetest.org/installers/software.dat

[Chrome]
exe="C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe"
options='--load-extension="c:\webpagetest\extension" --user-data-dir="%PROFILE%" --no-proxy-server'
installer=http://www.webpagetest.org/installers/browsers/chrome.dat

[Firefox]
exe="C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe"
options='-profile "%PROFILE%" -no-remote'
installer=http://www.webpagetest.org/installers/browsers/firefox.dat
template=firefox

[IE11]
exe="c:\program files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe"

Am i missing something?

Hi,
I'm facing the same problem. I installed AVISynth, and urlblast is connected to server. I tried to put server and test machine on the same or different but I can't see video anyway.
Do you have any suggestion?
Thank you in advance.

I have a similar situation, but it seems to be a bit wonky.

Video rendering and filmstrip creation is working for IE and Firefox, but the option never works for Chrome. I've got the option checked in Advanced Settings.

urlBlast is connected and working for Firefox and IE. Tests give me screenshots for Chrome, but never the film strip or video.

Quick addition to this. Seems to only do video for Chrome if I open the Advanced Settings section at the bottom. Might be a default setting / UI issue?
