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.  http://hmienterprises.com/webcam

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: https://icons.wunderground.com/webcamramdisk/w/u/WU_4433842/2/current.jpg

An official my wunderground webcam page: https://www.wunderground.com/webcams/WU_4433842/2/show.html

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

Hi,

New(ish) member. I'm running WeeWX on a raspberry pi and have a 15 Chinese 720p wired IP cam. I use a cron job every 5 minutes to grab the image, 'convert' to add the text etc and ftp the image to wunderground.





All in all, it works pretty well.

I saw your post above and I was wondering if you could help me do the same thing with my camera and pi? I'm fairly knowledgeable I just need to know what to do. Thanks.

Good morning all,
  I have had my webcam up and down for the past year or so now, and with all of the Weather Underground webcam issues over the past couple of months (and now the discontinuing of WU webcams come mid December) I finally decided to figure out a way to post my webcam image directly to my website. I am glad to say I finally got that situated. The current webcam image can be found on my website at http://monumenthillweather.webs.com/. With winter fast approaching, I was glad to get the camera back up and running again. The below picture is a snapshot from my cam this morning.

   - Matt

Here we go again my next attempt at a weather webcam for my station in Gulfview Heights, South Australia.

After the announcement of the demise of wunderground webcam hosting, decided to have a crack at doing it myself.

My current setup is an Intel NUC computer running windows 10 with yawcam and camera used is the Microsoft Lifecam Studio USB webcam.

direct link to webcam. Decided on the static image that updates every 10 seconds.

Camera faces roughly south.

Here is it integrated into weather page on my site.
