Cannot Download Images

Post by chrisrocks85 » Tue Oct 30, 2018 9:31 pm

Hello,

My python application attempts to download boxart/fanart for games but cannot since the images are hosted at an https: URL.

For testing purposes, I have also tried using download programs and they too fail to download all images.

Example URL as per result of Image by Game ID Request: https://cdn.thegamesdb.net/images/origi ... 2236-1.jpg (works in browser...)

Is there something I am missing so that image download will start working?

Do requests to the image URL need to include an API key, and if so please provide an example on how to properly format the URL.

Thanks in advance for your help.

I'll issue you an API key, Swagger docs should provide the examples you're seeking.
We're curious to see how new projects use TGDB API.
If you have a new public project, please provide a link to it so we can highlight cool new applications! 8-)

Hello!

You've been granted an API key which you can access through this page.

Please check the Announcements forum on a regular basis to ensure compliance with any changes or updates.

Documentation is available on Swagger here.

Thank you for your interest!

you don't need a key, you just need to enable https in your python request.
