Well, I installed a cron job to test the URL every hour at xx:32 and send me an
email if it failed.
It did so at 00:32 but I was asleep then so I could not fix it for the
recordings due...

The URL only lived about 24 hours this time.

So I still need an extraction script to call whenever it has failed.
Or every time a recording is about to start.
