Release 8.2.2022 - Start-up quality selector/URL links to animated preview/Bugfix active live streams

Start-up quality selector - this feature allows you as an editor to set the start bit rate in the player configuration. For example, let's say you want a high-resolution start frame when presenting a team logo, you are now able to select a high start bit rate. Or perhaps start up time is crucial then you choose a low start bit rate.

URL/links to animated preview under video → files - this allows you to copy the link and use it outside the player, for example in an article and not only in the player anymore. Perfect for getting attention and more traffic to the video with an image/animation.

Bugfix active live streams - If you have scheduled an event that is past its ending time or hasn’t started yet you will still get the green dot for running streams, this makes it clearer what streams are active.
