I've just added a time-lapse feature to the WeirsCAM. It isn't integrated into the site yet but here's a preview. Note that you can adjust the time frame and speed at the bottom of the viewer:

Our new time-lapse feature is so popular that we exceeded our daily quota yesterday. I'm trying to work that out now. If you see a ""Due to overwhelming demand this camera is paused" message please try again later.

Don -

You should really consider hosting those images and streams on a dedicated server. You can also look at programs like VLC that can re-broadcast and image stream, so that a single stream out of the camera could be fed to multiple viewers without imposing more load on the cable modem or connection to the camera. PM me if you need/want more info.

I'm looking into that and other options. To do this right I need a camera that supports H.264 streaming. The first step will be upgrading the camera, which is in the works.

H.264 is good from a bandwidth perspective, but you can do it with an MJPEG or MP4 streaming camera as well.

Is the camera you have now firmware upgradable to h.264?
