I, like many others, use some kind of webhook or chatbot that embeds a preview of our stream into discord when we go live. A lot of the free ones use this url:
The problem is that discord caches that, and RARELY updates it. So we end up with the same image over and over and over again.
The request I am asking for is to add the option to get a cachebuster added to the params of the request and if true, the response.
Something like epoch time would be great. resulting in something like this.
Likely easiest to implement:
Likely harder to implement as you’d need to add something to parse out the epoch from the URLS before returning the picture, but:
This would make a lot of lives a lot easier.
This is very difficult to apply on the webhook end because we dont always have a lot of control over where the url is coming from.
Would love feedback and thought.
