widget and short-code.
-Some webcams only load one image every x minutes and the image always has the same name. The PRO version fits this! Show the latest image every time you load the browser page.
-Some webcams load images with a different name always in the same folder. The PRO version fits that! Gets and displays the last x images found on the folder. You can choose how many images to show.
-Some webcams upload images to a daily folder; a new folder every day. The PRO version fits this! Find the last folder loaded and then enter it, if there is another folder enter it again and then obtain and show the last x images there are.
-Some webcams do not show the day and time of the image. The PRO version fits this! It adds a caption with the day and time of the image.
-Some forecast sites must download a webcam image with the same name and the same URL, but your webcam changes the name of the images and the URL of the daily folder. Here is a script that searches for the last image of your webcam and always saves it with the same name and the same URL. To do this you need a cron job.

This is an amazing plugin. I have purchased the PRO version which you must have to get full use of it. In fact, I haven’t found any other plugin that can do the same as this one. It shows images that you have uploaded to an FTP folder inside Wordpress. It doesn’t have to be in the media folder. This prevents the images from being stored in the database. Enter x number of days you want the images to be on the server and the images will be deleted automatically without you having to think about it any more. I had some problems with the installation, possibly because I misunderstood something, but Antonio Germani helped me and provided amazing support. I recommend this plugin and give it 5 stars.

Desidero esprimere la mia ammirazione per la straordinaria disponibilità e pazienza del creatore di questo plug-in, soprattutto nei confronti degli utenti meno esperti nella creazione di siti web. Mi ha fornito un supporto impeccabile, accompagnandomi passo dopo passo e soddisfacendo pienamente le mie esigenze. Il plug-in in sé è eccezionale e offre una modalità di sequenza delle immagini molto gradevole. Inoltre, il creatore lavora costantemente per migliorarlo e tenerlo aggiornato, dimostrando grande attenzione alle richieste degli utenti che acquistano la versione PRO. Nel mio caso, l’ho utilizzato con successo per gestire ben 4 webcam. Lo consiglio vivamente

Ho comprato Webcam Viewer Pro Edition per un mio cliente che necessitava di configurare due webcam sul suo sito di promozione turistica. Non riuscivo a configurarlo per la mia poca esperienza in fatto di webcam, ho contattato l’assistenza e Antonio Germani lo sviluppatorte, si è mostrato subito molto disponibile e celere nel rispondere all’assistenza e ad aiutarmi a configurare le webcam. Sono davvero molto soddisfatta!! Consiglio questo plugin e anche lo sviluppatore SERIO e PROFESSIONALE ElisaWeb

unfortunately, using this plugin is completely unintuitive. No guides, some incomprehensible example in the settings. I can’t make it work. Can the author write a simple guide on how to use it?? Since he already sells this plug. I would be grateful.
