=Quality Assurance=
This section of this wiki is about helping to increase the quality of different versions of VideoLAN's products, and mainly [[VLC media player]].
==Why this page ?==
===Main idea===
There is not much yet on this page, but the idea is to develop ''test protocols'', regroup ''test files'', and at the end improve the whole quality of VLC, to avoid ''regressions'' and check ''roadmaps.''
===Who is concerned===
The community of VideoLAN's numerous users and developers can enforce the project by doing systematic tests and report bugs and regressions. Some projects rely on a lot of external code that evolves a lot. Being '''numerous''' can help to make it better.
The '''bugs''' should be tracked down and killed using [http://trac.videolan.org trac]
==Why should you get involved ?==
The '''more''' we are, the more bugs are spotted, the best VLC is !
Easy, ain't it ?
So if '''you''' help, everyone will be a winner.
==How can you get involved ?==
Use this talk page or contact; for a start [[User_talk:J-b]] (this will change).
Then, just run the tests and modify this wiki's pages.
===Bug reporting===
Use trac to do these.
* Prepare the tests for VLC 0.8.6
* Gather original and references video and audio files
Motto: ''Let's improve VLC !!!''
==Tests to run==
You want to help testing VLC ? There are a few tests that you can handle:
* VLC playback tests (codecs and files related) Win32 and MacOS focused.
* VLC functionnality tests
* VLC transcode and streaming tests
=== Official files ===
All those files should be tested inside the reference FTP.
Use that structure to create the reports.
=== More files ===
Where to search for more files:
* MPlayer's [http://samples.mplayerhq.hu/ MPlayer's FTP]
* References codecs pages usually, linking to those should be enough...
==Versions roadmaps==
=== 0.9.0 ===
0.9.0 should be the first version to review now.
==== NB ====
Use the latest NB, 20070425 or newer to run your tests And report.
[http://nightlies.videolan.org/ Here] you can download experimental versions of VLC.
