Abstract: More than 80% consumer Internet traffic is for videos and most of them are recorded videos. Meanwhile, many organizations (such as national parks, vacation resorts, departments of transportation) provide real-time visual data (images or videos). These videos allow Internet users to observe events remotely. This speech explains how to discover real-time visual data on the Internet. The discovery process uses a crawler to reach many web pages. The information on these web pages are analyzed to identify candidates of realtime data. The data is downloaded multiple times over an extended time period; changes are detected to determine whether it is likely to provide real-time data. The data can be used during an emergency. For example, viewers may check whether a street is flooded and cannot pass. It is also possible using the data to observe long-term trends, such as how people react to movement restrictions during the COVID pandemic.
