One of us has misunderstood the question. It is my impression that the request was for the URL of a feed from a live webcam looking at Mars.
For a brief second there I thought it was about a webcam on Mars. Man, I need coffee. #-oOriginally Posted by Kaptain K

You can't have a realtime webcam on Mars. It's too far away.
Realtime + light time delay so...Originally Posted by Glom
And the connection fees would be, well, astronomical! :POriginally Posted by Glom
Speaking of live images... Will the Mars rovers actually transmit any video while driving around, or will it be all still images?
(And yes, I do realise that videos are a collection of still images, but you know what I mean... )
Here you go:
Link: Martian Surface Webcam
It updates every 5 minutes.
=D> OMG ROTFLMAO =D>
You can't have a realtime webcam on earth any distance greater than 150 miles X PI squared / 360 + (distance between recorder & viewer) /C.
No, what I meant was...
I am requesting that any person, currently reading or having previously read this Bad Astronomy web board topic post and in knowledge of a world wide web (herein refered to as "www") internet URL address that enables or results in images of the planet Mars from the point of view of Earth on the www user's computer monitor in as close to real present time as the technology is capable, to please communicate and cause to be visible the aforsaid URL in a timely manner on the Bad Astronomy web site for the benefit and enjoyment of all humans capable and interested in viewing the aforementioned images.
Okay that formula above is just a crock of Bad Science. Call it poetic license. Is this a good place to be doing that?
Gad, it doesn't pay to be slow & thoughtful when posting. Well, slow.
Waitaminit. Was that some kind of cruel trick?
To answer your question-
Nope, don't think so. Sorry...
