get thumbnails of live video periodically

Hi .
The “thumbnail_url” is used to get the thumbnail of the stream. The live thumbnails seem to be updated periodically, but the same image is displayed when a request is made from the url.
Thank you in advance.

if you are coping the URL into Discord.
Then Discord cached the image.
This is applicable to other things that might use caching.

This is solved with a simple/common cache busting technique. Ad ?random=thing on the end of the URL.

People will often do ?cache=TIMEINSECONDSNOW so the value always changes
