Exposed Webcam Viewer

Nice, ein Webcam-Viewer. Ich krieg da sehr oft kaputte Cam-Feeds, die besten Ergebnisse habe ich mit einem Klick auf Random. Und Vorsicht: „Depending on where you live, using this viewer may be considered illegal for various reasons. However, the viewer itself uses no malicious exploits in order to produce an image.“

The viewer has a database of webcam feed URLs which is updated regularly. The feeds that are detected as online (i.e. accessible) are displayed in the viewer. The default layout ia a 4×4 grid, which you can alter at the bottom of the page. […]

A lot of cameras can be found using Google if you know which search string to use (and you have a lot of patience). I also used Shodan (a search engine created by John Matherly) to get a large number of potential webcam feeds. […] At the moment, I’m using a bash script with curl to check the HTTP response code of the webcam feed. This works 99% of the time. When it doesn’t work, I manually check the feed and update the database accordingly. The script runs regularly to ensure that offline cameras are not displayed in the viewer that often.
