If you're looking for a load test tool to simulate real world traffic from multiple users and possibly around the world, we provide a commercial plugin called UbikLoadPack Video Streaming Plugin which is integrated with the well known Open Source Apache JMeter.
It supports Apple HLS (VOD and Live) and MPEG-DASH as of March 2017.
It allows you to get useful metrics like lag, buffer fill time and lag ratio.
It is very simple to use and can be used from the Cloud through our partner offer or on premise on any Cloud.
