Web cam issue(s)

Post by Tman » Tue Aug 20, 2019 8:28 pm

Hi

I'm almost there configuring my MB + MT combo (among other services). However, having hard time to get webcam picture to server(s).

First of all, in "Station" page I have green tick mark next to external picture. (and I can get it with my browser).

Weather underground:
When trying to upload to WU server, get error that picture file is too large.

Meteobridge:
error message "Not Found -The requested URL /cam/a7e8b1efc89d9066c45579b06c980c3b/cam.jpg was not found on this server."

and finally tried to upload via FTP to server, fails. It might be syntax error, I can upload test file with FTP.

Any help is appreciated.

Regards - Timo

from previous experience file size needs to be less that 150kb for WU uploads.

WU has also changed the method slightly for uploading images by using a "key" (their password)

you can if the image located on a webserver use a URL rather than using ftp.
