My client needs a webcam to show off the bay to her potential customers. Basically, she’s going to have a “bay cam” that shows what the conditions are like so people can check her website before coming out to get gear. And I’m a bit confused as to how this works. If we have a webcam set up how can the people see the images with maybe a few minutes delay? Or is that even possible with this.
Basically, you set up your system to store the image files from the webcam locally. Then you use this plugin on your website to “grab” the most recent image file from your webcam system (using FTP) and display it on your site.
By default, using in the short-code image=latest, it will appears the last image? I mean, if the webcam provide 1 image every 10 seconds, the website will shows the new image every 10 seconds or I need to create a new cron job for 10 seconds.

My question would be: Most webcams seem to upload files these days with a time stamp in the filname. That said the ftp folder just keeps filling up with pictures. does the software have the ability to periodically clear that folder so that the account doesn’t fill up with images…
The plugin does not have that facility at the moment, but it is something that we intend to include in a future release.
I’m disappointed. I did not know that there was NO provided support for this product anymore. Had I known, I wouldn’t have purchased it. I can not afford to pay $90 an hour (the price they want to charge me) for this $18 plug-in to diagnose it. It is not working on my site, even after reading through all of the written tutorial. I’m not new to plugins.
Looking to display still images from IP camera at certain regular time intervals. Does this still work with wp 4.5 and php7?
How often can I set time intervals to update image?
It works with WP4.5 but I haven’t tried it out with PHP7 – I don’t see why it wouldn’t work, but I haven’t had a chance to test it.
You can set the time intervals using the standard WP cron schedule, i.e. hourly, twice daily, daily.
my plugin is not working… it always shows me “Error saving test file: test.txt. Please check your server settings and permissions and try again.”
I already gave the upload folder chmod 777 – why am I getting this error?
please help! Thank you!
The actual folder where the files are copied to is called “webcam-images”. You should check the ownership and permissions of this folder – chmod 777 isn’t recommended – you should use chown to get the ownership right.
why can’t it save the test.txt?
I gave all rights to the webcam images folder
Something on the server is preventing it from being saved – you’ll need to talk to your hosting provider.
