Remote Image Viewing or Image Hotlink
Here is a small list of servers or web hosting services that do not
allow remote image viewing. Please do not submit SSTV cams to
worldsstv if your SSTV images are uploaded to these servers.
No Image Displayed

Sometimes the servers may be slow and will take a little longer to load

First check if you have the correct image url address. The image
url address should point to a jpg or gif image located on your
website. The url address should begin with "http://" without the
quotes. The end of the address should end with the image name. Not "htm"
or "html" An example image url address would look like
http://pages.suddenlink.net/ke5rs/sstv/image1.jpg starting with "http://
and ending with "jpg" To test your image address, type or copy/paste
it into your browser. The image should show up if all is correct.

browser, but is still does not show up on your SSTV cams page.
The SSTV cams on this website uses image hot linking. Image hot
linking is when an image is displayed on a website such as this site
and the image file is actually located or stored on another web host such as
Tripod or Angelfire.
Some web host providers do not allow image hot linking. A
couple of these hosts are Tripod and Angelfire. there are several
providers who block image hot linking

I will remove webcams from the SSTV Cams List here if the images are
hotlink protected or not showing up
The information here is the best I have come up with to explain what may be
going on and I have not found any real solid explanation to it. If
anyone has more information to why the remote images are not showing up, I
will be happy to post it here.
