So Mine had been working, other than the no apparent association when I look at the station. The only thing I changed was on Saturday I changed the IP to the DNS name to see if that would trigger the association, which apparently broke it. So I just changed it back to the IP and now it shows the camera as green and online. The IP I am using is 52.36.136.128. I will know tomorrow if it shows the video from today.

Using the IP instead of weathercam.xxx.xxx works, my images are back to showing up on the wundermap.

I tried the IP and no dice.

I just logged in to my camera directory and FileZilla showed 54.148.11.142:21.

I put that in there for now.......see what happens.

It was fine on regular address up until two days ago.

The IP was working for a few days, then dropped and didn't come back up. So I figured I would try the DNS name, that seems to be working now, at least for a few days. It still shows no association on my station, but the webcam does show up on the map. I can even see the stars go across the 'film' at night, which is kind of cool.

Yeah, I got nothin' ..... has been for several days. No IP, no name, nothing.

No rhyme or reason. Work fine for years then BAM!

Worked last summer wonderful when 99% were having issues......now nothing. My nerves.

What's your Wunderground ID ?

The Weather Station is KNMLOVIN14

I see you got your camera working in the end. What was the trick that did it?

I have the same problem - but on the page where "Asso this cam with a PWS:" - the pulldown offers grayed out and None.

Just noticed both my Cams also show as off-line.
Don't know for how long they've been that way as I see them daily on my own site.

My setup at Wunderground is to pull the image from my sites URL,
https://weather.inverellit.com/images/Wcam1.jpg & 2

Seems like the fetching process is broken too.

Nothing. It just sometimes works, sometimes doesn't. I assume it is some issue with their system that seems random.

Does anyone have a link to a Foscam camera that is showing up? Mine stopped showing up some time ago and if this is supposed to be working I'd be interested in knowing what settings that they are using.

After several emails to support @ wu I received this response

Hi!
Unfortunately, we have only very limited support for webcams.
