It is important to mention the website with the embedded stream.
But also the stream itself for direct use.   
Sometimes multiple different extension streams are available for different kind off devices.
Such as radio stations with a webcam stream.
Live streams.
Image streams with from time to time a update.

What's wrong with just url=*? To quote the url=* wiki page, "it is advised not to use this tag when more specific alternatives are available." Like website=*, it doesn't specify that it's a camera feed, so it might be used for other purposes. And in fact I happened to see a couple of nodes using url=* for picture *of* the camera, rather than pictures taken by the camera.
