So, I prefer watching video streams in desktop video players, like vlc, mpv and similar.
Using the api like this:
https://www.giantbomb.com/api/video/current-live/?api_key=[YOUR API KEY]
you get a working link. This works but you have to extract the stream url from it and send it to a of choice player.

My question is:
Is there a better way to get a working static stream url?

If not, my suggestion would be something like this, for the player:
https://www.giantbomb.com/api/video/play-live/?api_key=[YOUR API KEY]

Again, if not, the current system seems a bit ortodox.
