trouble with webcam image
« on: August 18, 2018, 08:05:00 PM »
I'm putting together a webcam page http://www.azjerry.com/ANPW/wxwebcam.php but the actual camera image isn't showing on the page.

This is the link to the image which works fine.

What am I missing?

https://www.dropbox.com/s/9ory9bfjwxlcru7/arlosnapshot.jpg?dl=0 doesn't return just the .jpg image, it returns an html document that contains the image.

Both work for me. The link works fine and I see the same pic on your web site.

Of course! I was so happy that it actually displayed the picture that I missed it was in a web page.  #-o

Yes, I just figured out this morning how correct the link so that it displays just the picture without the surrounding web page.
Corrected link is https://www.dropbox.com/s/9ory9bfjwxlcru7/arlosnapshot.jpg?dl=raw=1

Next step is to re-aim the camera.
