Are these webcam photos at the top of the page or photographs?
I have dial up connection. If I sit and watch, will people move or do I need to refresh the page? This is funny because I JUST realized everytime I come on here there is a different photo at the top. Duhhh... I'm dull today.

Wow! The photos are really nice and I am going to pay better attention now so I can see all of them!

Thanks for the webcam site.
I'll try it out tonight. I've seen one site, not sure if this is the same one, but I appreciate the link.

So... if I sit and watch the webcam... will the people eventually move? Or do I have to refesh the screen? I'm sorry :::laughing::: I don't know why I"m so engrossed by the idea of seeing people across the world move on my computer screen in real time... maybe I need to get a hobby! roflol!

I also love visiting the webcams Deb.
When the people or cars move it looks like they all have hicoughs!

Hi again,

Yes, if you go to the webcam age (link above) and sit and watch you can see people "move". I think it takes one picture each 2 or 3 seconds, so it is not like TV but you can see a person move.

It may not work with a dial-up... I sometimes have problems. With a fast connection, no problem.

Un saludo,

the principle is much the same, but TV (and film) is refreshed at a much faster rate so it appears to the human eye to be continuous motion even though it's actually a succession of separate frames. You'd be hard pushed to recognise anyone on those webcams, but at least you get the general picture, such as what the weather's like.

I have noticed that some of the webcams, such as the Fisterra one, are frequently out of action - do you know why this is, Ivar?
