Stream: mode and timeoutSeconds


I have been trying out Stream and had a couple of questions:

  1. I saw a timeoutSeconds documented (defaults to 0) to allow a small amount of tolerance for disconnects. However I don’t see an option to edit that value in the dashboard. Is that API only for now, or am I missing that?

  2. I’m not sure of the purpose of setting recording as ‘off’ … I initially did as I thought that would simply stop the recording (as in, let me watch the stream live but not make a vod recording). I set it as ‘off’, streamed to it … but couldn’t play it. At least not using the HLS URL that I tried. Is that correct? Does that received stream just disappear into the ether in that state? To be fair the dashboard does label the option as playback and recording.
