Want to play a video or show the announcement images before starting live events
Before starting live events, I would like to play a video or show some images with the message, “Please wait for the event” etc.
This would be fantastic! I made a whole slide deck to save event time explaining this was a live event, how to ask questions, no you can't "come off mute" since it's a live event, yes there will be a recording sent out. Housekeeping like that so as not to waste event time.
Then I realized when I clicked "Send Live" I hadn't actually sent it live ::sigh:: We would LOVE to play a pre meeting slide deck.

Yes! This is a real need. A beginning announcement (The Live Event will begin in a moment.) and an ending announcement (Thank you for attending today's Live Event.)
Yes, but that prevents the presenters from talking to organize before going live. I'd love to see the ability to replace the "Live event has not started" with a custom image.

You could start the event audio-muted with a shared PowerPoint displaying your intro....
