    benlstevens2: how do you get this to work with your Chumbys? I have a ChumbyOne that I'd like to setup to see my Foscam ip camera on the same network.

    I'm unable to get this app to work on a Chumby 8. It works on my other chumbys on the same network. (foscam cameras)

    ImageURL displays a very bright white 1-pixel border around the image. It is subtle in bright light, but distractingly bright at night. Is there a way to turn that border off?

    @ehertz - I tried to duplicate your issue here and was not able to. The scenario you decribed worked fine for me. To further assist you in troubleshooting your issue please come see us in support (http://www.chumby.com/pages/help_support). -chumby support

    The image part of this app is great. However, I found that when it is included in any channel, if an alarm is supposed to go off, the audio stream I try to activate at the beginning of the alarm is disabled, even though the other widgets in the channel works fine.

    I've had this app on my Chumby for use with a FOSCAM Ip camera F18918W [web firmware 2.4.8.12] for months. Although it will show correctly in my chumby dashboard through in a browswer [on Firefox / MAC], I can get nothing on the actually Chumby but a load error. I've tried this exact setup with both LAN [192.xxx.xx.xx:port#] and WAN [174.xx.xx.xx:port#] network addresses and no go ... Shady_ September 7, 2010 I can confirm this widget is working on the Infocast with a Foscam FI8908W using http://camera's.IP.address/snapshot.cgi?USER=youruser&PWD=yourpwd Anyone have a suggestion ?

    shoozhoo, great app! Is it possible to have the imageURL icon updated to be the last image loaded? That would be awesome! If that's not possible, can the app name be shown in the icon somehow? That would be a great alternative. Thanks...

  • BigJim40

    Is there a way to change the icon to have a new title? I would like the app for more than one thing. I put a title in the customize screen, but it doesn't do any good.

    Hello shoozhoo, I really like this widget, it’s very good…but due to my internet connection sometimes failing, I’d like to run it locally offline. Could you please allow me to download a .swf file that I can use and configure for offline use? This would be very useful to me and much appreciated. Thank you

    Can you add an option to type some unobtrusive text on the screen? This would be useful for putting a title on a webcam.

    Oh...you should be able to test your URL in a web browser to see if it works; it should give you a snapshot image if the URL is correct for the camera. If you can't browse to your camera snapshot in a browser window, then there is a problem with the URL. If it works there, it should work on your Chumby as well.

    Hello nickless, I don't know what model your Vivotek camera is, but the URL format that worked for me is: http://user:password@your_address.com:your_port/cgi-bin/video.jpg?size=5&quality=4 My video server is four channel, so I would use video1.jpg?, video2.jpg? and so forth. If yours is just a one camera server, try (as shown in the URL example)video.jpg? or perhaps video1.jpg? Hope this helps

    Thanks for the reply, but I don't know what to do with these instructions. How do I create a Proxy cgi on my chumby? I think I figured out that I have to create a file which includes my username and password named imgProxy.cgi according the one on your site. But how do I get it on my chumby? And what does "Line separator is LF. chmod +x." mean? Please some more help for a standard Chumby user without any knowledge on how to program this thing... :)

    I'm trying to access my Vivotek IP Cam. http://192.168.x.xx/cgi-bin/viewer/video.jpg loads the snapshot image but I'm having trouble with authentication. Putting User:password@ into the URL doesn't seem to work, I only get a black screen and I don't know what to do with the instructions on your website. Any more detailed help how to authenticate with my username and password?

    I agree...great widget. I was surprised that I didn't have to do anything to get basic authentication to work; just used a URL of http://user:passwword@[and the rest or the URL on my LAN] and it worked first time! Great job and thank you :-)

    This is a great widget. I have two babycams running on it now. Thanks! For those of you with Axis webcams, use the following URL construction: http://[cam IP address]/jpg/image.jpg and then set the image reload time in the widget to 1 second, or whatever you prefer. For example- one of my cameras is at (internal) IP address of 192.168.1.125- so the URL I plugged into the widget is http://192.168.1.125/jpg/image.jpg This works for the Axis 207w and Axis 207mw.

    I can't seem to get this to work for me. I'm trying to load two webcams on my new chumby. Webcam#1 is at http://81.221.18.246/ and the image location I put in the widget is http://81.221.18.246/cgi-bin/faststream.jpg?framestep=6&rand=700205 . Webcam #2 is at http://www.schaffhausen.ch/pages/kamera.asp , and the image location for that one which I tried putting in the widget is http://87.245.122.103/cgi-bin/mjpg/video.cgi?1262555218071 . All I get is a black screen for both on the chumby. Any help to get these running would be great. thx.

    I'm using this to display a regional weather radar image, taken from one of the regions here http://www.wunderground.com/radar/mosaic.asp - once you display the one you want, right click and choose "Copy image location", then use this URL for the image. I had a terrible time trying to capture some other weather radar images. They didn't work, I think, because on the PC they are relying on some cookie information to locate the radar region. The one above has all of it in the captured image location URL so it works. And it zooms, too. Rather than use an external list of URLs, I'd probably replicate the widget and set each one with the URL I wanted. I don't know if this would work with an animated map, because the URLs I tried for that don't have complete information in the URL I was able to see for them.

    Useful widget! I've got it set up to load a jpg from my security webcam every 2 seconds. Is it possible to suppress the "Loading" text that appears every time it loads a new image?

  • JudgeMonkey

    August 22, 2009

    It would be nice to be able to specify a list of images, but since you can just add the widget over and over and specify different images, it works well enough. i just create a special "picture slideshow" channel and add the app over and over again to that. Simple is good.

    This widget is brilliant in its simplicity. Enter the URL of any image on the web, and it will go out and refresh it every time the widget is loaded. It works great for obscure webcam locations that don't have their own widgets. I use it to keep an eye on my hometown, my alma mater, and my current city's skyline!

    November 7, 2008

    URL list is Text. The cross-domain problem occurs when Flash accesses the text data. Therefore, this wiget doesn't support the function. However, it is possible to achieve it easily by making CGI on chumby. See this page[http://d.hatena.ne.jp/shoozhoo/20081107#p1]. if you do not want to change a Image, set very long value to reload interval. Or, only one is registered in the URL list.

  • Chumby-M

    November 7, 2008

    >>This wiget doesn't have SignIn function for Flickr,Picasa.<< OK. I put an image on my own server and now I can see it with in the Chumby using a URL that ends with ".jpg". I understand the Zoom function and Reload. Request: rotate through list (or folder) of URLs, with timing for rotation and a "no rotation" setting.

  • shoozhoo

    November 6, 2008

    Do you need SignIn to look the image from PC? If it is so, you can not use this widget for this image. This wiget doesn't have SignIn function for Flickr,Picasa.

    File extension is not important. An Important Thing is Content-type header in the HTTP response. It should be 'image/jpeg'(or image/gif). It is not Html(text/html), Xml(text/xml). URL doesn't need brackets. Can you show me your URL? Shall I check your URL?

  • Chumby-M

    Is his supposed to function with any URL? Or only with a URL that ends with an image extension? Brackets with the URL or no brackets?

  • shoozhoo

    November 4, 2008

    Use is almost the same as [Load Image from URL]. The difference is to provide the zoom function and the reload function. And Background is black. [Prevent Caching] is always yes. On Customize URL of the image that wants to be displayed in [Image URL] is input. Example[http://www.chumby.com/images/application/chumby_logo_text90.gif] Please teach when there is image URL not displayed.
