My webcam (using the camserv software) saves images as multi-part jpegs, which display on a page to give the impression of a "streaming" image. However, if I use a stylesheet link, the image fails to appear. I suspect this has to do with a behaviour in mozilla first downloads all images, followed by stylesheet links, so it only begins to download the image, then stops, downloads the stylesheet, and thinks all the images have finished downloading... or something of the sort. Try and stick <IMG SRC="http://www.treehouse.org.za:9192"> in a page first without a stylesheet link, then with one (such as <LINK rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="../style.css">) ... I apologise if you're forced to view my ugly mug ;) Thanks!

webcam url worksforme linux build 2000-11-27-08 Tim, do you see this problem with a recent Mozilla build?
Yep, on the 20001128 nightly build. There seems to be more to this problem than I first reported. The problem only occurs in one of three situations: 1) When viewing a local page (in the form of file:///var/www/webcam/index.html) the image is displayed correctly. 2) When viewing a page not on the localhost (which is www.treehouse.org.za), but linking to http://www.treehouse.org.za:9192, the page displays (as from http://www.serendipity.org.za/~tim/webcam.html) 3) When viewing the page on the _local_ server... ie. fetching the page from the server on the localhost, the problem occurs... it results in a page being displayed without the image... ... and I've just discovered something else... when viewed from http://treehouse.org.za/webcam/, it displays, but when viewed at the URL http://www.treehouse.org.za/webcam/ it doesn't... the problem appears to be only when the page links to the URL http://www.treehouse.org.za:9192. When linking to http://treehouse.org.za:9192, the problem is reversed. And I've drawn a complete blank as to why this could be :) It is, however, reproducible. If it helps, mozilla prints out Document http://treehouse.org.za/webcam/ loaded successfully when the image is _not_ being displayed, but Error loading URL http://www.treehouse.org.za/webcam/: 804b0002 when this image _is_ displayed correctly.

This bug reappeared in around March, and I am still seeing it in the latest build, 2001062221 (Linux 2.4.2, PC). It seems slightly different from its previous incarnation: none of the special cases that applied there are no longer applicable... the jpeg appears on the screen for an instant and then disappears as if it were never there. No debugging output is printed on stdout. Thanks!

I no longer see this bug in build 20001071708... leaving it as NEW, in case you guys have something else planned :) You guys continue to amaze me, quick work! Thanks!
I am unable to view this webcam on linux build 61414
been meaning to report this one for months... This still doesn't work correctly here (Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.5+) Gecko/20011115), just displays the first frame and stops. FWIW, the data source here is from Axis network cameras. The problem is *not* stylesheet related; it behaves the same with the (non-stylesheeted) Axis motion JPEG page and with my own monitor page which has a stylesheet. The bug has moved over time; Mozilla used to display maybe 10-15 seconds of streaming data before stopping, so whatever fixes have gone in have made things worse... This is the last bug that is stopping me using Mozilla for everything I do on the web - when it is fixed, I can finally consign NS4 to /dev/null where it belongs.
This is a dupe of another multipart JPEG bug which was fixed. bug 42224 describes the current issue with multipart JPEGs ->WFM
