New member here, outside of Watertown, NY (right near the Canadian border).

I have a slightly different set-up than most of you I think - I use a pair of pretty old computers that I had laying around gathering dust, running XP and Jawcam (previously used Webcam32) and connecting to the Internet via my WiFi using a pair of old USB WIFI adapters (had to patch Windows XP with the last upgrade they came out with to get WPA2 to work on the old adapters and Windows) on long USB extension cables to get a favorable signal (I live in a 200 year old stone house so I have a number of routers to cover all of the bad spots and 1 1/2 foot thick walls, but it still can be iffy). 

One comp is way out in my disconnected garage (at the top of a hill) looking out toward the road, this is using an older Logitech C120 webcam, in the peak of my garage looking through a hole covered in glass and looking approximately southward.

Down the hill a bit is my house and at the very back of the house, which is also at the bottom of the hill is the lower level of my cellar where the other webcam is, running a cheapo Technet Model C016 webcam looking through a cellar window (I am thinking of mounting this in a weather-proof box in the Summer as the window will have a screen over it) viewing in an approximately northerly direction with good sight of my chickenhouse, and an Amish horse/cow field and Amish house in the distance.

These feed into my website running Wordpress and update at staggered intervals once an hour, twice an hour during weather events.  Both computers can be remotely logged into using VNC for maintenance and changing the update intervals, or to fire off a live shot.

The two opposite directions that the webcams face give a good over-view of the weather.  Plans for the future include maybe adding a weather station or at least a remote temp sensors connected to one of the computers, maybe another webcam/computer, and maybe an on-demand HTTP capture for both webcams.

I have a live stream of my backyard bird feeders, which doubles as a weather webcam. :)

Weather overlay on the video is coming from my Davis Pro 2 station, and updated every 5 minutes. The camera streams daily to YouTube during daylight hours Central Time.

Here is my setup here in Gulfview Heights, South Australia.
Camera faces roughly south west.

I have used an Edimax IP camera. Quality is better during the day.

It is a continuous live stream and can be viewed without having to log into the camera.

Here is my webcam. Automatically uploading every 1 minute to wunderground, by using freeware iSpyconnect. My webcam does not have a built-in ftp upload by interval, thus need to use iSpyconnect on my minipc. (Update: now auto upload snapshot to wu by ubuntu command lines on my cheap/small android tv box)

The current image is here:

An official my wunderground webcam page:

Camera: Starlight 2Mpx from China. It's an outdoor camera. Waterproof.
