Roblox Video Streaming – Technical Test is a Roblox game that was created by the test account, RobloxNewTechTest on February 28, 2020. The game was opened to the public on the next day, February 29, 2020, at 3:00 PM EST time. It was used by Roblox staff to test out the brand new in-game video streaming feature with large amounts of players. It also had its own section on the games page and a banner on every Roblox link (excluding the game's page) asking users to help test the feature out. An exclusive item, Lil’ Vernon the Red Dragon, was awarded to users who gave feedback to the feature in-game. The full 6th Annual Bloxys live stream was used to test the in-game video streaming feature, which was shown from a large TV within a theater.

The game quickly received over a million place visits within an hour of it being made public and announced on two different site banners. The feedback on the game was relatively positive, despite the video's quality being poor for many users. Upon it becoming public, it surpassed 80,000 concurrent players. As of February 29, 2020, it has been favorited 44,501 times.

Survey

In the survey, players could have given feedback by answering the following questions that were listed on the bottom menu. The following questions were:

  • On a scale of 1-5 (5 being the highest), how was the quality of the overall playback?
  • On a scale of 1-5 (5 being the highest), how was the quality of the video?
  • On a scale of 1-5 (5 being the highest), how was the quality of the audio?
  • On a scale of 1-5 (5 being the highest), how closely did the audio and video stay in sync?
  • How long did it take for the video to begin playing?
  • What device are you on?
  • How old is the console/computer/tablet/phone?
  • Any additional feedback you would like to give us? (optional)

Criticism

The game was somewhat criticized by the Roblox community for not leaving out the part within a segment of the full 6th Annual Bloxys live stream where the promotional code for the Showtime Bloxy Popcorn Hat was revealed. It was criticized specifically for the promotional code ($ILOVETHEBLOXYS$) not being active and causing confusion among some of the community, as it would have made sense for the part to be cut out or the item to be obtainable again (less likely).
