Senor probe for streaming video



So I use the Qos/Voip probe on Raspberry Pi's to see how time-sensitive data can change over a congested link. Do Paessler intend to/have any probes that could reach out to the likes of Youtube or Netflix, and then the results be collected by the server, for display. Something along the lines of Pytomo https://github.com/LouisPlisso/pytomo ?

Thank you for your feedback. If you want to test the reliability of your bandwidth, you could use a HTTP full web page sensor (https://www.paessler.com/manuals/prtg/http_full_web_page_sensor). This sensor tries to download a file from a remote web server and shows you the loading time.

Is this something like you imagined?
