Set up Weather for your VMcast

When you turn on Live Weather, your VMcast app displays the current weather data and forecast information for your specific location next to your video content.

1. After logging in, from your account dashboard, click VMcast’s Manage Streams link.

2. Next to the Stream Number of the stream you want to set, click on the Weather icon. This brings up all of your weather settings for that stream.

3. To get weather data from the right location, you need to enter your U.S. zip code. Locations outside of the United States need to enter in latitude/longitude coordinates. (Tutorial: How to get your latitude and longitude.) After your location is entered, hit “Save Changes.”

4. Make sure the map we show on screen is the location you want weather data from. If the location is wrong, hit the “Cancel” button and re-enter your location. If it is correct, hit the “Confirm” button. Now make sure the on/off button in the upper left corner is set to “ON.” That means your weather is on and set to go.

The next time you launch a Loop from the VMcast app, you will see the weather report for the location you set.

What is Displayed

On the left side of the TV you’ll see a panel that shows hourly temperature forecast for the current day and the five-day weather and temperature forecasts. At the bottom of the screen is the temperature and weather right now, as well as a forecast for later today and any active weather alerts.

Weather will display in English or Spanish depending on your app’s language setting. Temperatures are displayed in Celsius or Fahrenheit depending on your location.
