Is there a sample of the generated background image available somewhere?

Neat! However it could be great if EUMETSAT allowed open access to the Rapid Scan High-Rate SEVIRI data, allowing us to have 5-min, hi-res updates. http://www.eumetsat.int/website/home/Data/MeteosatServices/R...

As you have asked, I created a webpage which includes some sample images at http://skarmoutsosv.github.io/LiveWB/

I was about to fork this for KDE but then realized it strictly uses EU satelite images, hence EUMETSAT. The US pictures aren't ideal.
