How to add your webcam to Windy
Join the Windy community and make your webcam available to worldwide audience.
There are 2 ways to add a webcam to Windy.com, depending on the accessibility of your webcam:
1. Your webcam is publicly available
You have your webcam publicly accessible through a website and the webcam's server has IP addresses coming from outside on the white list. Note that this part is important, because we often experience issues with servers blocking our IP address by default.
Now if the above applies to your webcam, you can submit it via our Add new Webcam form.
We only save images which are publicly available on our website from timelapse slideshows. Webcam itself can have several views, depending on what is shown on webcam picture. Views can be added during the submission process, they will determine what category and title will be assigned to each webcam.
What happens after submission?
Once you submit your webcam application, we will review your webcam and test if downloading data on regular daily basis is possible, therefore it is important to provide us with a correct image URL. Webcam approval usually takes a few days.
If approved, you will be notified about the successful submission and your webcam will go live!
2. Your webcam is not publicly available
This means your webcam is not accessible through any platform nor it is available on a website.
In this case, we recommend to use AngelCam Live Broadcasting. It is the best solution if you already have a webcam and want to start broadcasting in a few simple steps.
