Ah, cool, I didn't know about it!

Yes, I agree!

Possibly. To provide a more precise answer it would help:

- to know whether the sources are available somewhere (I spent only a
couple of minutes on the site and didn't find a "sources" tab and
couldn't also find anything related on github by quickly googling)

- to know whether the tests are specified somewhere (even without
sources, with a good specification, we can re-implement it)

As I said, I did a quick search but did not find information on that on
the website. Either I was too quick or it's not obvious.

Do you know where we can find that info?

Nice! I wonder, for example, how YouTube test is implemented, i.e. do
they connect directly to YouTube servers or use another strategy?

Thank you,
