I am very enthusiastic in Octoparse.
Unfortunately, I have a problem right now. I'm scraping some products data from a website including the product thumbnail. In preview of the scraping taks, the img source is displayed correctly (for example https://website.com/123.jpg) for all products individual. But if I start the task, this field won't be filled that way, but with some unusable data like data:image/gif;base64,R0lGODlhAQA...
Does anyone have an idea how I can fix this problem?
The problem is solved. Because the webpage images were loaded with lazy load, the picture were loaded when scrolling in preview, but not when starting the scraping task. The option "scroll down to bottom" does not help in that case, because loading the pictures is skipped. To load the pictures correctly, when they are loaded by lazy load, you have to scroll for one screen and repeat it enough times.
