Here's a new one for me. Both cams look fine and up to date on the "show" page. But the image links I use on my site, cam 2 is returning

"Not found (error to origin)"

???

hmm, I think we need to find a way to rely less on wunderground.

I use to use camstreams.com to stream live real-time video. It's free too. You can then embed the stream on your site. \

Going on 3 hrs. since my last cam update on WU. It's getting to be a regular routine now. (get what you pay for so I'm not complaining) :roll:

That looks like a good find.  I downloaded it and installed it.  I had to work on the IP thing and firewall, but I got it working.  However, I couldn't get the ftp to wunderground to work (I'm using YAWCAM for that now).  Do you use camstream for that?

It also seems that it takes manual input to start the camera (live/archive) when the program is launched.  I like for things to start automatically (in case the computer reboots after a power outage).  Is there a way for camstream to do that?

Thanks!  :)

The way camstreams use to work was that you installed an encoder, they have one of their own, or I used Windows Media Encoder (free download).

The encoder takes the camera feed and sends it to camstreams. They turn around and provide the stream that other people see. It's buffered so it lags about 20 seconds or so behind the actual feed, but it's a nice steady stream in real time. You are allocated a certain amount of bandwidth, I had 1.5 mb's, then based on the quality you want to stream (and whether of not you include audio which adds to the bandwidth), that's how many people can view your stream. So if you have 1.5 mb total, and you stream 256k, 6 people can view the stream at once. I use to get 10 or so at once on my stream.

It's a little different than Wunderground because it is a steady continuous feed, not something that's sampled periodically.
