The IcamView web server has a low power processor, and is unable to manipulate the images at all. When you use the ActiveX or Java video viewer, the viewer manipulates the image for you (on the client PC).
If you access still frames, you have no such tool, and the frames come straight from the camera, warts and all. The most obvious issue is when images are flipped by the camera, and it expects the software to flip the images back.
Adding the Code in your HTML File
graceful="yes" errsrc="http://www.trumpton.org.uk/webcam/offline-320x200.jpg" alt="Tomy Cam" showdate="yes" bgc="black" fgc="white" refresh="310" />
<noscript><img class="webcam" src='http://www.trumpton.org.uk/webcam/garden0.jpg' alt="Tomy Cam" /></noscript>
- The <webcam> tag is interpreted by the script, and loads / edits the image.
