Yeah, thanks for your efforts. Unfortunately it exhibits the same problem. I've absolutely no idea what's going on with your setup. Perfectly working here using EU band. I tried to use my transmitter and receiver in the US band but I received an ungodly amount of noise so I had to drop the idea. What baffles me is that McCrossley's version works fine. Mine works perfectly, but skipping every other packet. I want to get to the bottom of this so I'm waiting for McCrossley's tests when he'll have the time for it.

run your url through its a good starting point and I wouldn't  go down the road just yet of converting your scripts perhaps just some attention needs to be paid to existing processes .gtmetrix is not just about speed it reveals a lot of other stuff that often is ignored or overlooked things like multiple instances of jquery,identical images served from different url s . spend some time studying the results it can be extremely rewarding . Im on ICDSOFT  and many months ago spent days eliminating all the suggested responses the server load is way below any concern however if any of us had 100 or more simultaneous visitors at one point we would expect to see a rapid rise in server load due to the nature that many weather sites (personal) have updates processes in seconds and pull data from many sources and don't always have the best way of structuring the loading sequence often find pages hang whilst waiting for a resources to load from some other url . script DEFER can work wonders if you get it right .
ps CDN save bandwidth but not always improving website loading , best practice beyond most of our reach(COST) is serve all jquery and css, fonts etc from the same CDN .

hope its of help attached a screenshot don't look that bad do just need to spend some time on it....Brian

not sure what's going on, but it's there now.

Maybe another browser and/or antivirus software could help...?
One other thing, though - in case we actually would also include all (important) weather data. Since we probably will not reuse or resell any weather data, we would need to make it profitable as it is - mainly by using advertising.
Would this be a problem for the majority of the weather station owners? Because if we would make it ad free for 10 USD per year, we most probably could not finance the service.

I'm going to stay with for the time being, and sit back and watch. Lots more features, too, for a measly 4.99/mo.

Explain "Lots more features" please.

- Ability to make video clips in different formats,
- Ability to determine when the cam starts/stops uploading (eg: 9 to 5, daylight hours only based on timezone, 24 hours...)
- The system automatically creates a timelapse video of days and weeks, based on timeframes you specify
- On your timelapse, you can edit frames, so if your cam uploads a wonky image you can just take it out
- Automatic uploading of your daily and weekly clips to YouTube and/or Dropbox
- You can download anything/everything created

You get the idea...

Here is mine:
I am going to give one camera a try and see what happens. i see there is a free trial.  What I would like to do is to take the image and put it on my Leuven template page.  I can do that if there is a URL .  I see I need to wait 24 hrs.  If I like what I see and it work, definitly  we are going with the basic plan.  So far it is pretty good.
I would think that would be a good start. But if wu continues their program as stated why would you want to offer this service? There has to be a cost associated with this service.

Sure, it all depends on whether WU can walk their talk...
Hello All!

We had a storm system that produced snow here in the Mid-Atlantic region this past weekend that brought 800+/day unique visitors to my site. While this is good for the overall visibility of my site, it also brought heavy loading on the servers hosted by ICDSOFT.  While i did not exceed the allotted  server limits, i would still like to decrease the loading even further.

I have several PHP scripts that get executed when my page loads, all of this increases server loads.  I have pondered converting those scripts to javascripts when/where possible to offload the processing.

I would like some insights and constructive inputs to the whys and why nots to do this...

Also... occasionally for unknown reasons, the software may lose a camera, and when I get the camera working again (and it may not be down at all), the software refuses to reconnect to the camera. A restart of the computer will fix it, so I'm not sure what's going on there.

Mike, I just love the Youtube streaming option. One click on and one click off, doesn't get any simpler than that. I just used it last weekend when we had snow here in Georgia and streamed for about 12 hours or so. Very cool.

Can I ask for two things? :-)

1. Add the YouTube start/stop as a toggle button/link on the main screen
2. Add a "Start next camera" link to the main screen. At times I've had to close a camera window and want to reload it, I have to poke around the other 3 camera screens and use a new camera option to load the camera.
