Mythweather - Wunderground maps broken

Reported by: g.maus@… Owned by: beirdo

Description

I have upgraded version .27 and just aquired a wonderground.key. Mythweater maps do not work.

I have found the following workaround.

For static maps the source wunderground_maps.pl creates the URL that MythWeather? uses to display data with this code....

my $url = "http://api.wunderground.com/api/$apikey/radar/q/$loc.png?" .

"width=1024&height=768&newmaps=1";

I can get static maps to work if I change the scripT as follows...

my $url = "http://api.wunderground.com/api/$apikey/radar/q/$loc.gif";

Please note that in the modified script, I have changed $loc.png to $loc.gif, AND remvoved the question mark. If the trailing '?' is left in place MythWeather? will not display the map. Also, the map does not dispaly if using png.

Similarily, I can get animated maps to work if I change the lines in wunderground-animaps.pl as follows:

my $url = "http://api.wunderground.com/api/$apikey/radar/q/$loc.png?" .

"width=1024&height=768&newmaps=1";

becomes:

my $url = "http://api.wunderground.com/api/$apikey/radar/q/$loc.png";

note, no '?'

my diagnoses is that Mythweather is choking on the ? in the URL, and it may also have problemes using png formated images.

Broken here as well; removing the query string allows the radar to appear but in a much lower resolution than desired.

I just tested this on 0.28 and master, and I don't have any problem downloading data/maps from Weather Underground.

David,

Did you apply any patches to get this to work, or is it just working "as is"?

Regards Stuart
