I disagree with you that an automatic update wouldn't add much.
Some time ago my xrit2pic could only create video in a manual way.
As a result I didn't do that very often (actually, rarely).
Now I have it running in a full automatic way (including removing
old data), covering western Europe, using RSS, and it is fascinating
to see how clouds are forming, moving, hanging against coasts etc.
Each day is different. I think the only way to experience that is to
have an automatic way of creation; you never know what next day will

Hi David, Graham,
In the beginning the program will probably not update the video
automatically. ( I don't like to use scripts ). The reason is of
course that my system exist of two PC's, one receiving the data
and one running EUMETCastView and my programs must run on Linux as
well as on Windows. But that being said, if you keep the
calculated video images from a previous run, a new run ( for
example 1 hour later ), will be very fast because the program will
only calculate the added video images. For creating the video
itself I use 'ffmpeg', which is very fast, (https://www.ffmpeg.org/ ) and
runs on Windows and Linux.
Updating the video automatically makes the whole thing more
complex, and, in my humble opinion does not add much to the
usability of the program.
