My webcam not showing up
« on: November 02, 2019, 03:24:16 PM »
so I used my Foscam software to set up the webcam. I get a success on the Foscam FTP but it never shows up on WU.

Make sure your credentials, camera name from your device list and correct password, are correct and the file is named "image.jpg

Next are you using "webcam.wunderground.com" for the target server?  If so try the IP address of 52.36.136.128 and see if that works.

Also, be aware that it takes some time, as in a few hours, for the first image to appear.
If it's not a Boerboel it's just a dog.

As you can see Foscam is getting success from the data I've entered but WU must not be honoring it. So now I assume it's WUs fault since it's been at least 18 hours. Got me baffled.

Given that the test from the Foscam works I'll speculate it's yet another undocumented "feature" of WU.  I FTP using Blue Iris and it took a while before the first image showed up.  I don't see a file name, though, and that could be a problem as well.  I don't use Foscam cameras so I can't offer any advice in terms of changing a file name.  Try switching to the IP address rather than the URL for the FTP service.

so you also have to setup alarm on the camera for motion detection for the camera to send image

I got success but WU still shows offline. Maybe I need to give it a little bit of time now.
