How much to set up and run a webcam?

The title says it all. I live in a major city, the only webcams show the road outside the uni!

Now what would you want to be looking at then?? :o)

If you have the kit, ie: server or MASSIVE drive and a slow refresh rate then the costs can be kept down to on-line time.

click here for one we setup. It was, at first refreshed every 5 Min's, it's now every half an hour.

Streaming is another....

Thanks for that, Blackpool holds many happy memories! The idea is to get an idea of the costs and present them to the Council, Tourist Information and other interested groups to get together on a project.

I can see the tower from where I live....:-)

They say if you can see Blackpool Tower it's going to rain.

If you can't, then it's raining.
