Manual testing is a suitable option when immediate test results are required for a test environment or when continuous access to the stream is not available round the clock.
## Initiating manual tests
To initiate a manual test run for a test environment, follow these steps:
Access the streams list.
Locate the desired test environment.
Click on the Test immediately action corresponding to the test environment. Note: This option will only be enabled if the stream has already been validated successfully on the test environment.
A player subscription allows each account/organization to start 20 manual test execution per month. If you require an increase in this limit, please [contact our support team](🔗).
