1. Create an AcsClient instance.
    client = AcsClient(access_key_id, access_key_secret, mps_region_id);
  2. Create request and set parameters.
    request = SubmitSnapshotJobRequest.SubmitSnapshotJobRequest()
    request.set_accept_format('json')
  3. Set screenshot parameters.
    • Input
      job_input = {'Location': oss_location,
              'Bucket': oss_bucket,
              'Object': quote(head_object) }
       request.set_Input(json.dumps(job_input))
    • SnapshotConfig
      • OutputFile
        job_output = {'Location': oss_location,
              'Bucket': oss_bucket,
              'Object': quote(oss_output_object) }
        snapshot_config = {'OutputFile': job_output}
      • Time
        snapshot_config['Time'] = 2
      • Interval/Num
        snapshot_config['Interval'] = 2
        snapshot_config['Num'] = 3
      • Width/Height
        snapshot_config['Height'] = 360
  4. Initiate API request and display returned value.
    response_str = client.do_action_with_exception(request)
    response = json.loads(response_str)
    print response
    print 'RequestId is:', response['RequestId']
    print 'JobId is:', response['SnapshotJob']['Id']
    print 'http://%s.%s.aliyuncs.com/output_00001.jpg' % (oss_bucket, oss_location)
    print 'http://%s.%s.aliyuncs.com/output_00002.jpg' % (oss_bucket, oss_location)
    print 'http://%s.%s.aliyuncs.com/output_00003.jpg' % (oss_bucket, oss_location)
