Flash Webcam Tutorial

I made a tutorial video which explains how to find the JPEG image URL of a Flash based webcam which can be used with SlothCam. Unfortunately not all Flash webcams use jpeg images, but some do, and I thought this might be helpful to SlothCam users. Let me know what you think of the video, and I’ll try to make more like it soon.

Houston Skyline Webcam

I now have my own webcam here in Houston Texas. It’s a live view of the Houston skyline which is great for watching the weather in Houston. It also has a great view of the sunrise. You can check it out here. If you want to add it to SlothCam for iOS, click the link below on your iOS device (it only works in the paid version of SlothCam and you have to click it on a device with SlothCam installed).

More on the Giglio Italy and the Costa Concordia Webcam

I noticed today that I’ve been getting a bit more traffic here than usual from people searching for the Costa Concordia webcam due to my previous post about it. I wanted to add that the webcam I posted earlier is owned and operated by Giglio News. If you like the cam, please pay them a visit and spend some time on their site as a thank you for making such an interesting webcam available to the public.

The URL of the Giglio webcam image is http://www.giglionews.com/isoladelgiglio_porto.jpg .

If you are using the paid ($0.99) version of SlothCam you can click the link in my previous post to install the webcam as long as you are viewing this page from a device with SlothCam installed. If you’re using the free version of SlothCam or the Dashboard Widget, you have to do it manually. You need to click on the white “i” on the lower left corner of the app to go into the settings screen, then click the + sign to add a new webcam, and enter the webcam URL above manually. Set the refresh rate to 30 seconds. I hope this helps!

Costa Concordia on SlothCam

I just found an interesting webcam which shows the wreck of the Costa Concordia in Giglio, Italy. My condolences to all of the families affected by this tragedy. If you are reading this on your iPhone or iPad, and you have SlothCam installed, then click the link below to install the webcam in SlothCam. This webcam is hosted by www.GiglioNews.it.

If you don’t already have SlothCam, you can download it on the App Store here and then come back to this page and click the link above.

Keep the time difference in mind. If you look at this cam when its dark in Italy, you won’t see much.

If you have any trouble setting up SlothCam with the Costa Concordia webcam, let me know.


Donation to Japan

This weekend I am going to donate the profits from SlothCam WebCam Browser to the Japanese Red Cross Society as part of the “Apps for Japan” charity effort. If you haven’t already purchased SlothCam, now is the time.

Also, here is a webcam in Tokyo that you can add to SlothCam by clicking this link on your iOS device, and then choosing “Add” when SlothCam launches and the import menu shows up. This cam is on top of a tall building in downtown Tokyo and offers a great view of the city. Here is a picture from this webcam in the SlothCam dashboard widget.


Tsunami Watch Webcam

If anybody is interested in keeping an eye on the Pacific coast due to the Tsunami warnings, here are some webcams in California (Half Moon Bay and Santa Cruz) that you can monitor with SlothCam. Just click here and then choose the “Add Webcams” option on your iPhone or iPad to install the cam. It might be loading slowly today due to all of the activity on the site. If you have any other good pacific coast webcams, please let me know and I can post them here.

If you are using SlothCam Free, you’ll need to copy and paste these URLs into the app to install the cams.
