Dynamicaly generated image under static URL


#1

How to periodically save image, which appears at the same URL and is replaced from time to time?
Example URL (notice it’s not direct URL to a file):
https://fr.sat24.com/image/?region=fr&type=visual5HDComplete

Ideally it could check it the image is the same as the previous time, but saving and constant intervals is fine, too.

Hello @stoickov,

If you would not mind that there will be the background included with the image, you can simply use the https://www.apify.com/apify/screenshot-url actor from our library and use our Scheduler to set it up to run regularly and use our API to retrieve the images.

To get the image without the background, it gets a little more complicated so let me know if the above solution is insufficient and I’ll try to guide you through it.
