Common issues with browser-based videos in Katalon Studio report

When you are unable to generate browser-based videos.

There are no physical video files in the folder, or it only shows the .srt file.

The issue might happen due to different decimal separators in different languages which leads to an invalid duration format for each screen frame. You need to change the default decimal separator to the US standard.

  1. In Tests Explorer section, go to Include > config then open the file in trace mode.

    1. Add the script below into the Before Test Suite method in the Test Listener file. See Create new Test Listeners.
