Ability to start streaming without "IS NOW LIVE" notification being sent, option to enable manual mode.
Streamer should be able to toggle the default "going live notifications" (push/web/email/etc) so they can test stream briefly. Perhaps an option to send that notification manually once they are sure everything is working.
I would love this, if I stream multiple times in a day, I don't want to bother my followers with multiple notifications even if they're spread 4 hours apart. My main concern for coming here!
It is my understanding that partners (and possibly affiliates) can actually run a test stream.
Before anyone brings up "bandwidthtest=true" - Last time I used it there is no video displayed either. This suggestion is for an option that would display video on the channel for testing purposes. (if bandwidthtest=true does show video then I will suggest OBS add a button to toggle this flag )
