Just a little purple circle and text that says "Streaming" to let people know you're streaming.
Concept images below.
A good compromise for the people that don't want to be targeted would be for the "streaming" status to be only view-able in every world type except public, so that if someone is in a public world no one can really see if they are streaming, and people that want to be in a large instance with friends in a friends+ world can still feel safe. Though I feel is someone really wanted to target a streamer they would just go to the stream and figure out a way to the world somehow.
Also, I'm sure people would like a "Hide users in Streaming Mode" as an option as well. Lots of people are uncomfortable being recorded/streamed.
Well i think this status should only be visible for friends only and not on any other public as it will risk streamer and all thier friends they are with.
while yes, this is good way to tell people that there is streamer around, it is unfortunately true that there is bad people that will use this feature to target specifically streamers, and with that also innocent people who just happen to be in area can get hit by scriptkids and crashers.
@KimplE: good u dont call them hackers
cus they are not
@migero: hackers are ones who actually make the code and stuff, scriptkids are just people who dont actually know much about how things work but use the hack made by others
@KimplE: couldn’t have said it better myself
also add lewding to the list
@migero: NSFW stuff is technically not allowed, why would you want a "ban me" status?
@Demirramon: u can do what u want in priv and friends only just dont make it public
trust me i joined on many people that did that and wish i would rather not
@migero: I know you can, all I'm saying is that they won't make a specific status for something they don't support. You can set custom status so you could use that
This can be good or bad. Yes it should be common curtesy in a public world to let people know they're on stream, on the other hand it's like you're putting a big red crosshair on yourself to attract all kinds of nasty people trying to be "funny" or "edgy" or just plain crash you cause you're streaming.
This is a very Fine Implemention, u get a thumbs up.
Extra points if you autodetect it.
@Hakanai: ez if obs is open auto switches to streaming. And or if you are live on twitch
Yes please! I think even in public worlds it's incredibly rude to stream without asking or telling people, unless you are performing and the camera is on yourself. Imagine your hanging out with friends at a coffee shop and some loud windbag sits at your table livestreaming with his phone on a selfie stick.
