MB WebCam-Upload-Service only without Weather-Data? **solved**

Post by xray77 »

Hello,
I noticed that the cam upload available in the MeteoBridge services only contains the webcam image without the weather data displayed by MeteoBridge.
That doesn't make much sense, because that is the feature of MeteoBridge to insert the weather data into a webcam picture (camplus.jpg).
It would be nice if in a future version of MeteoBridge firmware the webcam image included the weather data (camplus.jpg) could be uploaded via service, is that possible to realize? I would make a time-lapse with this pictures on my web-server...
Thanks a lot,
best regards
Michael

Annotation of weather data into your cam picture is done on the Meteobridge server as the Meteobridge client cannot run the comparable big imagemagick software on its own. Therefore, the picture is stored on the server and the Meteobridge client cannot actively upload this picture to somewhere else. It needs to be grabbed from the Meteobridge server by your web server.

Hello Admin,
I wasn't aware that it all worked through a MeteoBridge server. Okay, so I have to get the image from the MeteoBridge server using a cronjob on my Webserver, that would be possible... But the server address is a https-address, so it is not possible to get the image with a simple get command via PHP... How do I formulate the PHP for a GET over https? I am not very familiar with php, and would be very grateful for a tip?
