Not sure if this helps, but in Chromium there is an option
to fake media devices; e.g. chromium --use-fake-device-for-media-stream
Together with a headless testing library like Puppeteer or Playwright,
it should be quite easy to write a script that load-tests a Galene server using
several Chrome instances. Not really sure if the WebRTC api uncovers
things like jitter and packet loss though.

Anyway, all it requires is some basic setup to click through the
Galene UI. In that case, might help.
