free online webcamsWho hasn’t dropped by a webcam or two to waste some time?  I’m not sure what is so fascinating about them but people just like webcams.  Maybe it’s the real-time aspect of it all.

There are a lot of free online webcams out there that are good at being interesting.  For instance, check out the article about the best free webcams to watch when you are bored The Best Free Web Cams To Watch When You're Bored The Best Free Web Cams To Watch When You're Bored Read More .  As you can see, many webcams are very interesting to watch, for some reason.

On the other side of the equation, some webcams just make us stop and wonder what people were thinking of when they set them up.  Check out some of them most boring webcams on the net.

Watch Paint Peel

Watch paint peel?  Like I said, sometimes I don’t know what people are thinking.  People watch it though.  I wonder how long someone has to watch this one before they get some kind of on screen action.  As for me and my house, we will keep the peeling to ourselves.

Watch Grass Grow

Seriously?  People actually go through the bother to set up cameras to watch their grass grow?  And they expect people to watch?  I know we’ve all had days when we didn’t feel up to doing much more than watching grass grow but come on!  From the person who mows the grass around this house, let’s find a cam where we can watch grass NOT grow.  Now that would be a feat.

Watch The Traffic

Did you know that you can actually log on and watch traffic cameras?  I can look out my window if I want to watch traffic – and the frame rate is even better.  On this site you have a map marking off all of the traffic cams you can look at.  Many hours of joyous fun can be spent here, I’m sure of it.

Watch Cheese

OK, the cheddarvision makes watching paint peel interesting.  Normally watching food would make me hungry but for some reason not in this case.  The only redeeming part to this is that they have also recorded a 12-month time lapse video of the whole thing.  I guess that makes it all OK.

Watch A Garden

What can be more interesting than watching grass grow?  Watching a whole garden grow, of course.  The frame rate is good and the plants look nice, but what’s the point?  Sure, it’s fun watching the plants flowing in the breeze but I can do that in my own back yard.

One cool part is that you can make their bubble machine blow bubbles.  Not sure why you’d want to but have fun with it.

OK, so you’d have to be pretty bored to want to check some of these free online webcams out.  I don’t know, maybe it’s the level of boring-ness that makes them irresistible to take a peek at.  Check them out, tell us what you think and share some more boring webcams in the comments.

    Thanks Tim

    In that case, I suspect that issue with the Avast is a false positive.

    I just ran the site through several security-checking tools:

    Norton Safe Web: rated it "safe"
    Google Safe Browsing Diagnostic: turned out with nothing suspicious or malicious
    McAfee's website safety rating: came up "We tested this site and didn't find any significant problems."

    I don't know why Avast is flagging it but these other sites don't see any issues.

    Hi Tim,

    I also use Avast and got the alert as well. Could you investigate this? Maybe run the URLs through Google and other online website security check tools.

    Avast Antivirus detected a threat when opening the first two links. Maybe a false positive, but it's worth paying attention to.

      Interesting. Thanks for the heads up. Both links are parts of the same website so that would be why they BOTH are giving the same message. I didn't have any problems though. Anyone else?

    Equally boring is the American Catering Equipment's UK webcam. I stumbled across it years ago when it was slightly more interesting, but hey, I don't have a life.
