overlay (HUD) contents

When FBX is ready to stream, the overlay will appear and the Start hotkey (Ctrl + F12, by default) will become active

 TIP  If the hotkey reminder is enabled, it will indicate whether FBX is setup to just stream or stream and record.

When FBX starts streaming, the overlay will change to show that it is broadcasting.
