Have you not got a Beta option at the top of the dashboard?

Re: Samknows video Stream Testing

Yes, and I've opted in 3 times now but nothing extra appears as suggested when I next login.
I'm assuming another option appears on the tabs to the left ?

Re: Samknows video Stream Testing

I see. I wonder if it only appears when it's collected data for it?

Re: Samknows video Stream Testing

I'm not sure if this test has been rolled out to the UK yet properly as it was originally designed for the US.
Different countries seem to have slightly different tests, like in the US where they have VoIP/P2P/FTP/Email tests.

Re: Samknows video Stream Testing

I had that in mind last night Jelv, so I thought I would give it the benefit of a few hours, but so far nothing seen.
It was worded very American Andy using words like 'phat' and 'skinny-line'  Grin

... of course it may be man-in-the-middle malware catching people who opt-in.  Wink

Hello,
Thank you for letting us know about viewing the 'Video Stream Testing' function. This function is not yet available but new testing metrics will be rolled out very soon.
We will be sending an email to panelists about this with the option to opt out. We have now removed this selection from the panel dashboard to avoid confusion.
I apologise for any inconvenience.
Kind regards,

The SamKnows Team

Re: Samknows video Stream Testing

I got an email from samknows yesterday and the video stream testing is live for UK users now.
Just login to your samknows panel and tick the box under video testing to agree.

I've just done it and it says it should be active/start testing  within 24hrs
