Two questions; (question and feature RQ, not sure where to post seeing as it’s both support and request)
First, is there a possibility to manually trigger the live event?
(A command in discord for example, I could setup another bot to automatically delete the command after it’s been executed in the text channel, if phantombot can’t do this itself).
For these reasons:
It sometimes bugs out, which I need to follow with a restart of the bot. (rare, but it happens)
When the stream is already live after this happens, it won’t post a live notification.
I start the stream, but my internet cuts off shortly after, or I need to fix something and for that need to restart the stream. The bot then posts the live announcement, as well as the following offline message.
I restart the stream, but because it was recently announced, it doesn’t announce it again.
For both these circumstances, it would be fantastic to have a manual live trigger.
If it goes live, then announces it goes offline. People will assume it’s still offline so long as there’s no new live announcement.
The other question was;
How often does the image/thumbnail grab happen? (I still had a thumbnail from weeks ago despite streaming daily)
Is there a way to make it grab a new thumbnail each time the stream starts?
Is there also a way to add a delay before it grabs the thumbnail? So it doesn’t always show the ‘stream starting soon’ screen, as it grabs it shortly after it’s gone live.
