i have installed the plug in and the set up is ok. the picture is displayed. but if i used the shortcode [obr_display_image image=latest] there is no picure, only the message “No image available to display at this time!” pls help.
Do you have more than one image on the remote server?
hi, thx for fast response
i have only one picture on the remote server, which been updated by the webcam. this picture is showing on the set up page.
Can you try adding another image onto the remote server and see what happens? Tx
ok i have added another image on the remote server in the same directory, but nothing happens. only the message
Mm. Would you mind e-mailing me your site and FTP details so that I can take a look please? firstname.lastname@example.org
Great, thanks. All sorted as per my email.
yeah great it works thx
i have another question:
there are only 2 images in the flexslider. if i change the motiv, there is only the first image from today morning and the last image. no image from between.
That’s because you only have 2 images captured. You need to make sure that each image has a different filename.
hello i have setup all settings but it is not working.
Please can you give me some information? I need to know at which of the 3 set-up stages, the problem is occurring. Also, what error message are you receiving?
we installed the plugin, but we don´t get the newest images, because the local folder /uploads/webcam-images catches not every new image from the remote folder. Is this a server problem, or can you please help?
Many thanks for buying our plugin.
Did everything work okay on the “Set-up” page? And have you tried the “Copy All Files” button on the “Images” page?
Also can you let me know what error messages you are seeing please?
You can email this to us at email@example.com if you’d prefer.
I’m building a website for ski and I am looking the following:
We have cameras on the slopes so I would like to allow users to view the status of the snow from the website through images collected from cameras. Would it be possible to do this with your plugin?
Yes, you can use our plugin for that.
Thank you very much for your help and your fast response
hey there – i’m trying to set up the plugin
the local images directory is “working as expected”
question – does that directory need to be named specifically?
i have a directory where i’m uploading my Netcam images (every 5 seconds and deleting old 1s) that also contains html pages and other files
also, should the FTP path to that directory include the full server path, or just the remote one
or just /html/webcamimages
i’ve saved my FTP settings with the full path, as well as created a new directory on my server called webcam-images with an enclosed .jpg file (although i’d prefer to use the existing directory where i’m currently uploading images)
when i test the server on the set up tab – i get no error message, but no small image appears at the top of the page, and when i try to copy images to my local WP directory, the error message reads “no remote file found”
any thoughts, and thank you ;o
You shouldn’t need to worry about the local images as the plugin deals with them automatically. For info, they will be in wp-content/uploads/webcam-images/
Regarding the FTP path, I expect it’s the full path, but there are many ways that it might be configured, so you may need to experiment.
If you’re getting no error message, try setting the passive option (under advanced) to explicit – that should fix it.
thanks Mike – my FTP settings are configured correctly, and i’ve tried toggling the passive option, yet when I i click the link to copy all images on the images tab, still am receiving the error “no remote image available”, which clearly indicate that the problem lies with the plugin connecting to my server via FTP
...in that i’ve created a folder on my server called “webcam-images” (not the one where the actual webcam images that i want to ultimately display in Wordpress are being uploaded by my cam), and placed one .jpg file in it for testing purposes. The plugin is not connecting and copying this file to the /Wordpress/WPcontent/uploads/webcam-images directory on my server
any more thoughts?
Mike is out of the office today, but if you could email your admin logon details to firstname.lastname@example.org then I will get him to have a look at your set-up when he gets back.
Can the slider work like an interactive webcam time lapse? (examples: 3lapse.com) In other words, can a site visitor select a time range of the last 20 webcam images and click play? How about archiving images by the day?
That’s a feature LOADS of people are searching for on weather webcam forums – seriously, hundreds of weather nerds are asking, no Wordpress answers. Can this do the trick?
You can already let the slider cycle through all the images that have been transferred across. This can be done in forwards or reverse order.
You’ve made some good suggestions, e.g. about using only the last 20 images, which I’ve added to the wishlist for this plugin. Thank you.
All the images? My webcam uploads an image every 30 seconds 18 hours a day. There’s no way to control the number of images in the slider?
For example, save each day’s images into one slider permanently, so visitors can click on a date and watch the day’s slider?
And thank you – I appreciate your quick reply!
Hi. Yes, all the images in the plugin’s image file, not the image file on the remote webcam server.
I like your idea about all of one day’s images, I’ll give it some thought.
I’m sorry to beat a dead horse here, but I don’t know how many images make up “all the images in the plugin’s image file?”
Can I control the number of images (and WHICH images) display in the slider or not?
Like I said, my webcam already automatically ftp uploads an image every 30 seconds (nearly all webcams can do this) so unless this plugin provides some functions that my webcam doesn’t already do on its own, I don’t see the point in buying it? (I can embed the images in Wordpress with basic HTML, after all!)
I’d love to make timelapse videos with a plugin, but I’m still not clear that this plugin has any controls? So – I will buy this if can I control the number of images (and WHICH images) display in the slider.
So, can this plugin do that or not?
I don’t think this plugin is going to meet your needs. Our plugin is about easily transferring images using FTP from a remote server into your WordPress site and then displaying them on the site – we use FlexSlider to create an animated display. There are several display options but it doesn’t yet have the fine level of control that you’re looking for.
If you’d like us to customise the plugin to meet your requirements, please email a detailed specification to email@example.com and we’ll be able to provide you with a quote for the work.
Thanks, Mike. I appreciate the clear reply.
So I can use this o display the latest image from a server folder that is updated every x internval (say 30 minutes)?
30 minutes later the next new image is shown instead?
Yes, that’s exactly what it’s designed to do.
For update intervals which are not in the WP schedule e.g. 30 minutes a from job is probably best to use. Let me know if you need more information on this…
