Saving the camera's snapshot from URL to the local disk

Posted · Saving the camera's snapshot from URL to the local disk

Hi, I am trying to save the snapshot of camera in S3 from the URL to the local disk by using the request module of Node.js.

Here is my code.

    camera_capture_URL = URL + ':8080/?action=snapshot';
    request(camera_capture_URL, function (error, response, body) {
        if (!error && response.statusCode == 200) {
            console.log('content-type:', response.headers['content-type']);
            fs.writeFile('Test.jpg', body, function(err){
               if (err) throw err
                console.log('File saved.')

I can receive the response successfully and the content-type is 'image/jpeg'.

But after I save the "body" as a jpg file, I can't read it.


So is there any operation that I need to do when saving the response?
