traffic cam tile keeps on expiring?

i see people's tile setups with traffic cams. the ones i found like on sigalert or trafficland work initially but then after a few hours the image expires. anyone find a better source or a way to keep the traffic cam images from expiring?

1. yup. i went to media and it's set as a static image.
as an example, i went to trafficland. pulled up an image of traffic. right click and saved image address. gave me this url:
or even if i pull it from siglalert:
eventually those all time out.
We have a possible fix pending deployment.
if you click on the links above, you'll see the Error 401: image expired that i see on my tiles.
i tried different refresh rates...30 seconds to like 50 minutes and all eventually get the image expired screen.
i tried to strip out some of the parameters but the image wouldn't show after that.
Oh... There's nothing we can do about that... This is an image source specific problem.
They are building a TOKEN into the image URL so that you are purposefully prevented from embedding it into a web page like ActionTiles!
