Hi,
I have a W-8681 weather station and would like to add a webcam, I have an SPC880nc webcam and would like
to know what I need to get this webcam working and uploading pictures.
Any help gratefully received.
John

A lot of us on here use YAWCAM http://www.yawcam.com/

its donationware but does a pretty good job. If you just want to upload the latest image you can get Cumulus to update variables that you can include on the image and then get Cumulus to upload it to your website. I've found the YAWCAM ftp uploader is a bit unreliable, Cumulus seems to do the job much better.

Hi John,
No. Yawcam will work locally.
