Help getting Media Tile URL from NOAA satellite?

Willis 5 months ago in Media Tiles / Weather & Traffic • updated by Terry (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 4 months ago 4

I found this link:  https://www.star.nesdis.noaa.gov/GOES/GOES16_CONUS_Band.php?band=GEOCOLOR&length=72


Which has a really cool looking weather .GIF loop.  However, the way the site is setup, I cannot turn it into a Media tile.  Anyone have any ideas on how show the loop in a tile?

Willis,


The URL link you posted doesn't yield a GIF, but rather a web page that has a series of JPG images in it that are cycled through (like a slideshow!) via script on that page. Such a "slideshow" is not compatible with a Media Tile.

Nice find, here are the gifs for CONUS and great lakes (I found these links in the blue menu bar under "all channels" or "region selector")...
