If you can't find it in the source code, then it's likely dynamically generated
with JavaScript. You might be able to figure out how to download some JSON from
somewhere and stitch together the URL yourself, but that will be tricky and
fragile. Another technique is to use a headless browser to execute the
JavaScript, then you can snatch the URL from there, but there will be a steep
learning curve to do that. If you're really lucky, then there will be a nice
documented API that will give you exactly what you need.
