Lightbulb Intermissions (autopilot)

Allow the autopilot when it is started to play a video from folder A (intermissions or something) and then go back to folder B with all the old recordings.

Very often the broadcasters seem to crash or have some other technical difficulties or they switch between broadcaster. If there was some kind of intermission in between it would be seen as less frustrating when switching over. However we wouldn't want to lose the content from the recordings either. Therefor the different folders would serve quite useful.

I'll post an example :

-Person A is broadcasting "live show A"
-Person A has technical difficulties and has to restart his pc.
-Autopilot shows intermission video
-Person A goes live again
-Person A is finished and goes offline
-Autopilot shows intermission video
-Intermission video finished.
-Autopilot shows old recordings

yes, you can make a flowchart out of that ... maybe I should make one to make this more clear

Edit 2:
here's a flowchart in the attachments

Default This is very important!

Yes, we need a mechanism where, if the broadcast stream is interrupted, rather than showing "offline," Autopilot would automatically run a "stand by" slide or video, etc., until the stream is re-established.

You can accomplish this by simply inserting such a video in your auto pilot in place of the offline color bars.
