Hmmm, this is simple. You need to create flash frame and get a flash clock to exhibit the time. Remember that you only need to publish once the flash file.

Hi

Have a look here http://www.signagehelp.com/magic/index.php/topic,342.0.html there is a simple example of a weather feed from BBC.

You can get the BBC weather wuite esaily by pointing the main web site, i.e. www.bbc.co.uk but you will need to use offsets from left and top. I use this for the i-player, but remember that only n the UK this is valid.

I have found the example of BBC, but only works with UK :)

I really need to display weather for several cities around the world.

Thanks for the suggestion anyway.
