    Webcams?

    Advertisement



    Am I the only person in the world that finds webcams fascinating?

    I am not talking about adult webcams either, so get your mind out of the gutter. But I mean other webcams...Where you can be sitting at home or in your office and see whats happening live on a street corner in Germany. Or inside a pub in Isreal. Or watch the Pandas at the zoo in San Diego. Maybe watch people in Times Square?

    If I am not the only one, then post some of the sites you have found for good webcams. I mainly like streaming ones, preferably with audio (For ones that are like in bars or whatnot).

    Here are some of the better ones I have found:

    www.earthcam.com (Its ok)
    www.webcamplaza.net
    www.camstreams.com
    www.nola.com (Especially good on Friday and Saturday nights when they have the live shows).

    N8, won't it be nice the day we can watch streaming video on our BB's?

    Right now, the only webcams I've found are static ones such as WorldCam or TrafficEdge.

    They actually have one now where you can control your "gun" that's on a turret (sp?) And hunt at a place in Texas, right in the comfort of your home! They had an article several months back in the Det Free Press about it. Wild!

    Re: Webcams?

    Apparently this will not work with the bb as a modem. I keep getting little blurps of sound but no real picture. Hmmm, Is there a plugin I need to install?

    John, which aren't coming up? all of them or only certain ones? Some of them are down for maintenance or people took them down because the govt said "terrorists could use webcams to gather information" blah blah blah.

    Don't have the URLs right now but there are some that are specifically set up for train watching. Try Googling Train Cams.

    I like them as well. I put one on my laptop during my last vaca and my parents got to see the Gulf and their grandkids playing on the beach.
