Description

Motivation

Additionally to testing, openQA can be used to create demonstration videos, and ideally the same
test code can be used, just that there should be certain pauses, and we would want to see the mouse
moving and have a little pause before clicking.

Testing of course still has the higher priotity, and the os-autoinst code should not get more
complicated, but for creating simple demo videos we probably don't need much new code.

Acceptance criteria

  • AC1: A demo mode exists and is enabled via a setting like DEMO_MODE, which can be used for videos targeted at human beings learning about something

Suggestions

  • Provide an easy way to delay/sleep around needle matches (assuming this is usually what a user would want to take a look at)
  • "Slow down" the generated video rather than the test itself (e.g. around needles etc)
  • Move the mouse pointer gradually rather than instantaneously
