Flight Viewer is a just a system where you can broadcast continous screenshots of your flights on the web while flying.
Basically the same concept as SAG-TV, and a few other places have.
I've always enjoying SAG-TV, but felt limited because you had to actually be logged on to Vatsim, and be a member of vatsim Europe. I had the feeling those requirements limited the actual participation in such a system.
So I have set up a dedicated host at viras.org, for this purpose, but with the goal of pilots who are, and who are not part of networks such as vatsim/Ivao etc participating.
The way it works is simple.
1) Run the FS ScreenCap program.
2) Go to the viewer web page (http://www.viras.org/fv
) , and within about a minute or so, your information displays on the view list
with any other flighsimmers sending screenshots.
3) Clicking on the 'Online' link, displays the viewer page for that
A new screenshot is sent about once every 10 seconds, the viewer page page also refreshes itself about once every 10 seconds. The participant list is updated once every minute.
If you have FSUIPC installed, then it will also send some simulator details such as your aircraft's coordinates, altitude, and speed.
Right now the web page is still in a basic state, but that look will change soon as Garry our web page designer is working on it.
What I'm looking for is a few volunteers willing to help test out the system while they are flying around in flightsim. And maybe provide some suggestions ideas etc to improve it.
Anyone interested, please contact me via email (at email@example.com
) or PM me. Include your, name (real) , email, and I will give you an initial account and password on the system for testing.
