let viewer decide timing of ads
The new updates on Ads Manager, on my perspective as a viewer and a streamer, also sharing this perspective with other viewers and streamers, is tragic. One of the most used settings now is a 3-minutes-long ad pack and it can really blow the experience of watching a livestream, randomly losing 3 minutes of the content.
However, I would like to still support my favorite streamers by taking the ads. So the suggestion I have is: Take those 3 minutes of ads that would be just thrown at a random (for the viewer perspective) time and define a time limit for the user to see the ads. For example, it would be something like a display saying "You have 3 minutes of ads to watch in the next 30 minutes" and then the viewer can choose whenever he wants to do that, and if they don't do it until the time runs out, the ads will run anyway.
