i'm a bit disappointed. I saw a link, suggesting we can now add WebCams to Windy. So I spent quite a bit of time tracking down a good WebCam for a small town near me, and filled out the form. When I got to the final part, there was a checkbox to confirm I'm the owner of the WebCams. well I'm not, because it's a publicly available image. So I wasted a bunch of time and couldn't add anything.
It would help if you said right up front that you can only add WebCams that you operate yourself.
we can't submit a new webcam. Windy says "We already process this webcam", but it's not true. The cam we are submitting is a new one.
It's definitely frustrating when Windy rejects your webcam submission with an inaccurate message. Here are some steps you can take to resolve the issue
URL Accuracy: Ensure the submitted URL points directly to the latest image snapshot of your webcam, not a website homepage or video stream.
@Suty Ok, all working now :) i was building the bbox incorrectly. now all work. The same with the nearby option. I was camel casing (nearBy) it and therefore the API was not getting the option. Thank you!
Access to the live stream feed is possible through player.live when it is available.
But we do not own the live-stream player. So clicking the play button will open the live stream feed on a new page, as illustrated in the example below.
