Wwebcam upload to WeatherUnderground fails
« on: January 11, 2018, 11:03:07 PM »
Unable to upload via WeatherDisplay. FileZilla works fine but have to use alternate IP address for WU "54.148.11.142". Maybe this can be replaced in the WD.ini file somewhere?
Stopped working around the 4th of january.
Tnx..

wunderground has been having lots of problems lately with a lot of things, web cam uploads being one of them
using a fixed IP just means you are using one particular server instead of the one allocated by load balancing
(and so then putting more strain on that server, etc)

if you have WD uploading the webcam image to a web site then you can set WU to get the image from that url instead

if you really want to though I can make it where you can set the IP

Thank you Brian!
But... I think I got it working again... at least for now. Seems logging into my account with another FTP client seems to have caused the regular WD upload to work again. No idea why.
Agreed they must be trying something at the WU server side, they certainly seem to be having trouble getting all the webcam data administered. I can't see an issue on the WD side so far unless they change something at WU.
Keeping my fingers crossed. :)

*Well it worked for a while... after about 12 hrs it quit again. Guess we'll have to wait for WU to get things straightened out...
