What We Like

  • Unique camera feeds.

  • Multiple room options.

What We Don't Like

  • Limited free cams.

  • Requires Flash.

  • Easy to stumble onto adult content.

With a slogan of The private life of other people live 24/7, you know exactly what you're getting with this webcam site.

You can select the apartments of several different people who have live webcams set up. Choose free views of different rooms or opt to pay for a premium option to see cams in other rooms, activate motion detection, auto-follow the top live cams, and more.

This live webcam site gives you a map of their apartment to be able to choose what views you want. Be as much of a voyeur as you wish — as much as they let you see (and you can see a lot).

Garden Bubble Cam

What We Like

  • Provides a level of control.

What We Don't Like

  • Hardly any activity.

See a peaceful garden in a South Florida home. There isn't much to this webcam but you do you have a bit more control than the at-home webcam feeds from above.

The Garden Bubble Cam lets you liven things up by clicking the Bubbles button to activates 30 seconds of bubble-making.

Enjoy your moment of zen.

What We Like

  • Interactive lights.

  • Text with other viewers.

What We Don't Like

  • Relatively low quality camera.

  • Strict messaging policy.

You can control lights and even a disco ball in this room in Denison, Texas. Something else unique about this live webcam feed is that you can send a message to the LED board...and you might even get a reply from another viewer!

Feedback is shown in real-time with this webcam. There are links to a couple other cameras on this website, too, located in Greenville Michigan.

International Space Station Webcam

What We Like

  • Watch Earth from space!

  • See the crew live.

  • Open old archives.

  • View in full screen.

What We Don't Like

  • Low quality feed.

It's home away from home for several astronauts. You can watch them live when the crew is on duty. When they aren't, you'll see the view of Earth.

You can listen in to conversations between the crew and Mission Control.

Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel Webcam

What We Like

  • Take a picture of any frame.

  • Supports full screen mode.

  • Includes related live cams.

What We Don't Like

  • Low quality feed.

  • Often no action.

What happens in Vegas doesn't necessarily stay in Vegas. You can watch happy (or simply drunk) couples tie the knot at Elvis-themed weddings, complete with the King himself making an appearance.

There are volume controls and you can pan and zoom digitally to get a better view, which you might need because this webcam feed is usually poor quality.

Nesting Bird Cams

What We Like

  • Huge variety of live feeds.

  • Cams from around the world.

What We Don't Like

  • Many feeds are offline.

  • Can't filter for just on air webcams.

If you like watching birds nesting, this site should make you very happy. Here you can find cams set up to view a whole array of nesting bird species from around the world.

From penguins in Antarctica to bald eagles in Washington, D.C., there are lots to pick from, so if one nest is empty, try another. Although it might not be nesting season in one part of the world, it always is somewhere else.

Nessie on the Net

What We Like

  • Relatively clear feed.

  • Wide angle to view more.

  • Take a screenshot of the webcam.

What We Don't Like

  • Hard to see detail in the water.

Live cams have been set up in Scotland at Loch Ness so that you can watch 24/7 for the legendary plesiosaur-like beastie — or just some sheep that graze nearby.
