    New features:

    • Pressing 'Fast Forward' one or more times speeds up the speed at which the images are refreshed. 5s --> 3.5s --> 2.2s --> 1s --> back to 5s.
    • Pressing 'Pause' freezes the camera rotation, and holds the current camera on-screen.

    Cool feature alert: Certain cities (e.g. DC, NYC) provide real-time updates to their camera images, so you can use these two new features together to provide an almost video-like update. Here's an example of how to do it:

    • Setup - Chose Region - DC - Baltimore-Washington Area (292)
    • Pick the first couple cameras, then save the list
    • Go back to the 'View Cameras' screen
    • When viewing any camera, press Pause
    • Press Fast-forward 3 times

    That camera will update live every second! New York City's cameras work this way as well.

    Unfortunately, Caltrans is video-only, no JPG stills, so I can't easily support it right now. There are approaches I might be able to use to solve this problem eventually, but right now the only CA cameras I have listed are a few temporary ones in Sandy Eggo.

    I can't find a decent source for cameras in Chicago. If you know of some, post some pointers here. I found a couple of cameras at one of the local NBC station, but I assume there's an official source of them I just haven't run across yet. My normal search techniques are failing me.

    Thanks a lot for the lead. That was definately the problem.
    For other Mac users, I used 'flip' - (cant post url but search for 'flip text conversion') - with the -u option on runtc.sh and bango, off and running.

    Thanks again,
    Ross

    How 'bout some love for people north of the border. Could you check on adding some traffic cams for Vancouver, B.C.

    Also, if you can do traffic cams - would ski cams be able to work as well? I would love to be able to check the local conditions in the morning!

    I haven't had any other reports of this. Do other HME apps work when TrafficCam Viewer is installed? Also, check the logs/ directory in the trafficcam install directory to see if there's anything insteresting or unusual logged there. I'm still running an older version of Galleon but I'll upgrade and see if I can reproduce the problem.

    Funny, one of my good friends at work had the exact same suggestion. There's nothing in the design of the app that would prevent its use for ski cams -- just a couple of string changes for the title of the app. In fact, I might even be able to make it user-configurable and move the strings into the config file. (see factory-defaults/app-defaults.xml.) Hmmm...

    I think there's a bunch of new Illinois/Chicago cams on the IDOT website. Here's the site. I know there's 9 supported by Trafficam already, but there's more than that many on this site now.
