    Fastest way would probably to just change the source of the image preventing a page reload.

    That could eat a lot of your badnwidth - I'm curious, why do you need to refresh an image every second? The image is a static image yes?

    Hmm look into this http://cowboyfrank.net/webcams/Streaming.htm
    I haven't done things like this myself but the article seems to explain what you need to do it.
