I present for your isolation viewing pleasure...

... this rather simple, but cool site: Window Swap ...

It's just rather calming, and interesting to see what things look like out the window in various parts of the world. Also it's amusing to watch some folks' pets as they gaze longingly outside or wander in and out of the frame; for example, Justin in Rochester, NY has a very cute Mainecoon. For the wuppie lovers, check out some windows in India.

Edit: depending on your internet speed, it can sometimes take a few seconds to load up a view.

Cool......looks like these aren't live, but curated. Probably much easier to make a SFW site that way. Fun to cycle around a bit!

Interesting. Only lingered for about 5 seconds on each one, but it's pretty cool.

Way cool way to spend some iso-time.

It took a long time to load because of my low-end DSL, but it's really nice.

Yes, curation is key.

One doesn't want to be looking out someone's window and into someone else's.

Wonder why they want you to submit a 10 minute video if they are only doing static pics.

I'm guessing either they want to sample whatever they think is/are the nicest parts, or they just loop the 10 minutes?

And definitely some of the views are more exciting / interesting than others. Aeschiried, Switzerland is gorgeous. Okinawa looks like a lot of fun.

Huh? They're loops.

I pulled the source for one of the files. Have a look:

I just get a single static picture on my phone. I wonder why?

Possibly an ad-blocker or other app that interferes with streaming video?

I did notice some weirdness looking at it using Safari ... whereas it works perfectly in Opera Developer (see one post down! ... yet another reason to use multiple browsers).

Just tried it in Safari on my iPhone, and got the same result as you... could be something about Safari on iOS, or just the fact that my phone is pretty slow... still using a 6+.

Firefox on my iMac and it works fine. Some have more action than others. I might upload one myself but the window at home would be a little boring however over at the river property it should be more fun.

Sorry, I should have STF'd first -- I do forget to do that sometimes!

Very cool idea, thanks.

Cool site, obviously many others missed it, so worth reposting. I’m just teasing.
