Hey bellorusha - I am a little unsure about the updating feature myself. Mine do update, but it's kind of hit or miss. For sure if I hit "refresh" it updates 100% of the time, however when it's just sitting there on my home page, well then I am not so sure, although I could swear that I have noticed pictures change when I didn't hit refresh, but never would I swear to it!! That said, they way I did it is I right clicked on the web cam pic I wanted and then chose "properties" and then I right clicked on top of the URL Address and chose "select all". You will notice that it selects/highlights the entire URL. Now right click yet again and hit "copy" and then "paste" that into your webcam'S URL area. There is for sure probably a much easier way to do this, but it's the only thing I could figure out after messing around with it. Here is the URL for Piccadilly Circus-London

Tengo mas de 2 horas tratando de peronalizar mi webcam en mi pagina de inicio de google y no he podido he seguido las instruccuines paso a paso y la verdad NO PUEDO alguien por favor ayudeme...... las instucciones que he seguido son las siguientes:

1. Click "Edit" at the top of your module.
2. "Module title": Write your Module Title.
3. "URL of your WebCam": Here you must type the URL of your favorite webcam [it MUST end with a jpg, gif, png, swf (...) file]. Here's how:

Go to your favorite webcam page (you have a list of sites at the right side of this page), right click the webcam image, select "Copy image location" and paste this link.
4. "Resize Height" and "Resize Width". You can leave the default values or resize your image to fit the window.
5. Click "Save".

Està molt bé, felicitats. Crec que estaria bé que la foto enllacés amb la web corresponent a la webcam...

De totes maneres... felicitats...

I like this gadget very much.

But,there is a suggestion about this.
I think whenever I click the part of phote in this gadget, it should go not to this blogsite but go to the site that provides photes by webcams.because we can get more information about photes by the providing site.

Sorry for incorrect english (I think) because of my poor english level.

Imho, i think also that this gadget must give some credit (with a link?) to webcam owner... bandwidth is expensive!

This fucking SUCKS. I have 4 different browsers and no matter WHICH one I use, when I click on ANY of the cams I have added to i-google, it ALWAYS results in being brought to the fucking BLOG page, and NOT to the actual cam URL.

What's up with THAT?,..you goog-bastards.

Blogger Sheldon F said...

Dude... "Mark" no need to cus out the creator of the gadget.
If you think you can make it better go make it yourself.
That way you can make it go where ever you want.
As for me it's a great gadget... thanks!!

I would like to insert in my igoogle homepage a webcam from www.earthcam.com in Times Square..I think maybe real fantastic,but I see nothing!How can I do to see it?What about height and webcam resize?I must change or not?

Blogger Moritz said...

I agree with some comments above: great gadget, but please change the link to point to the webcam picture URL instead of to the blog. As users have already added the gadget (otherwise they couldn't hit the link), there's no need for them to go to the blog. Many thanks!

The webcam I want uses a java app to load the image. Right clicking (Firefox) on the image doesn't do anything. Clicking outside the image on the page brings up a dialog box saying the image is copy protected. There seems to be no way to get a link to a jpg file

The modules on my home page have collapsed and display the text: Information Temporarily Unavailable. They have been in this state for more than a week. After finally deleting these, and trying to apply more to take their place, the modules that appeared were also collapsed.
Anyone else having this problem?

I am not much of a guy who thinks in so deeply about web design but I think your post had some valid points in it. Like designers are forced to design stuff within the limited code available and not go beyond it, their innovation is somewhat limited but s

Google is so far one of the best producers for the most used computer gadgets and software. I have just learned that the webcam by Google has very nice features and I believe that this is what each user would want. I actually find this post to be very helpful because such products are what many have been looking for. Best Music school sop writers
