At a specified web url is a .jpg image file that gets updated every 2 minutes.
I want to download this file over and over every x minutes and save it as another filename. Like 1.jpg 2.jpg etc etc..So that I in the end can compile a video file out of the downloaded pictures. Does anyone know any software that can do this or a script?

You can try this with everything.

I'd suggest a dot net application with a timer (2 minutes).

Just fetch the url and download the picture, i don't know the code by heart but you can find more information here.

You can save the picture with system.io commands.

Part of the code for fetching a picture

I made my own program last night in java.
Solution accepted, it was a good tip even though i had thought about it already. Good tip for others later too.
