BB Webcam Viewer

BB (Big Brother) is a small and simple webcam and security camera viewer that, given the URL of an image and a refresh rate, will display the latest image on the desktop. Images can be displayed in a normal window, always-on-top, or below everything else.

        Release Notes: Several bugs that could cause image refreshes to stop were fixed. An on-screen notification is now shown if updates are failing due to network problems. Fast user switching is now honored by pausing image refresh when someone else logs in. Window size and location are remembered more accurately and image updates resume more quickly after the computer wakes from sleep. The refresh rate is slowed after repeated failures to save bandwidth and to avoid hammering an overloaded Web server.
