What info to enter for Weather Underground link

Post by audio51 » Mon Aug 12, 2019 11:57 pm

I am trying to set up one of the 2 cameras I use in BI to run as a weather camera linked to my Weather Station. It indicates that the likely needed info to link the camera is as follows:

Device ID: Audio51xxx
Upload Key: gzbxxxx


Server: webcam.wunderground.com
Password: gxbxxxxx
Directory: "/" (or leave blank)
File name: Image.jpg
Transfer type: binary

I can't find anywhere in BI where this info would work. I clicked the "webcast" tab and this is what I see:

Can anyone tell me how I can connect this camera to stream on Weather Underground?

I'm not saying all of my settings are correct as I just got this working a few days ago and have tried to shutoff a few of the settings I didn't think should be needed but seemed to be as it stopped working until I turned them back on. First in the Server settings I added a folder in the Clips and archiving tab for WeatherUnderground

then in the FTP settings on the FTP Server tab I added the FTP settings from WU

then back on the FTP Servers tab I made sure it was enabled.

I then went into the specific cameras settings and set each profile for that camera to record snapshots each 15 minutes to the folder I setup for them in the Clips and archiving tab previously.

Last I setup the post tab settings for that camera to post the JPGs to the FTP server configured previously.

I now get a picture uploaded every 15 minutes, this could be more often or less, I just didn't want to be constantly creating a connection to the FTP server.

The "Maintain a Ring of" check box seem to not be needed for the WU Webcam setup as I unchecked that and its continued to work.
