Webcams show same image twice, but once stretched and blurry in the background
When using the webcam API's camera feeds that have a square image have the same image again behind it, stretched and blurry. This is really weird and unnecessary. Especially when embedding the images somewhere.
Highlighted the unnecessary/duplicated area:
I have access to the WSDOT cameras as well and this bug is not in the original data feed, so it looks like a bug on Windy's side. Any chance this can get resolved? Or is there a way to query the API differently?
In some cases I can workaround this using a different data feed, but in other regions where I don't have that option this problem persists.
The same issue can be observed on the website: https://www.windy.com/-Webcams/United-States/West-Virginia/Pleasant-Valley/US-97-at-MP-27-1:-Satus-Pass/webcams/1459260569?45.983,-120.860,11
or also when accessing a camera directly:
@skofgar Hello, the webcam displays like this due to cropping. I have changed the settings and the webcam display correctly now.
Hello @korina, thanks a lot for fixing it. This issue applies to a lot of Washington Department of Transportation (WSDOT) cameras and Oregon (ODOT) as well?
a few more examples are here:
Is it possible to apply these cropping fixes in bulk across both data providers.
To clarify, I think a few hundred cameras by ODOT and WSDOT have this problem.
@skofgar Hello, after looking into this matter, we do not plan to change the cropping at the moment as it could cause some issues with other webcams.
