I couldn't find MPG anywhere on the forum. I'm accessing a web page (RotundaCam Home Page (http://www.virginia.edu/cgi-local/rcamcgi)) that is supposed to have a .jpg displayed and it shows no pic. When I clicked in the space where the pic was supposed to be (under Image Will Update) there was a mention of MPG but the file displayed is supposed to be a JPG. Are there settings on the Evo that have to be changed to permit JPGs to be displayed? Thanks.

That refreshing webcam image is actually a java program. Since Android phones don't have a full java implementation, it's probably why you can't see the cam.

None of the other media formats they offer will work on the Evo, so probably not on any Android phone.

If they rewrote the page to use a Javascript Ajax call to the server to get new images, that would be viewable on the phone.
