Webcam hosting and Webcam Network sites using Java applets fails to work properly after updating to latest JRE release Version 1.6.0 (build 1.6.0_02-b06).
Launch a web cam applet site, for example:
Note: Ensure Java Sun (JRE) is enabled for Internet Explorer under Advanced settings. Also Plug-in is listed enabled in IE Add-ons
Applet display the initial image and remaining steadfast/stuck thereafter without any further movement. This is a general behavior among common webcam applets and across different browser(s) including Firefox/Mozilla etc. Also note that all the sites I tried to run are listed as trusted/safe, so that they loads without permission and any active x extras can be installed. Normal Java applet loads correctly.
This seems to be a regression since testing with 1.4.2_14, applets performed fine.
Some example web sites (applets) exhibiting problem:
Note: for some reason the Edinburgh City Centre does work
3 Many cams at http://www.networkwebcams.co.uk/
Few more applets with failures reported after updating to 6u03:
Tested with java version "1.6.0_10-ea" release:
Applets still failed to work.
This is confirmed to fail with latest available JRE version at java.com that is 6u03 and latest available Java Kernel release 6u10ea at java.net
Applets should be able to provide live feed/pictures continually.
