Some but not all of the different hiway cams have live video streams,
and you can tell which ones just by clicking on the various camera
icons.  The ones with live video streams provide a link for the live
viedo at the top of the little box that pops up when you click on the
little camera icon for that particular camera.

The ones nead Sacramento, and on up 80 and 50 into the Sierras generally
seem to have the video links, but a lot of the others don't seem to have

Anyway, I'm running 8.2-RELEASE, and I'm still not shure why the video
doesn't work for me.  Bad luck I guess.  Somewhere there is an evil bitGod
who doesn't like me. :-)
