I'm terrible at python and need your help with two questions

Hi there.

I got the 5020L DLink camera and I would like to apply this script to it. SO I downloaded the doorbell.py and change it to:

Code:
import xbmc, xbmcgui, time, urllib

#inherit from WindowDialog instead of Window so that it's shown on top of
#what's onscreen instead of replacing it entirely
class CamView(xbmcgui.WindowDialog):

    def __init__(self):
        #Define image location and size
        self.image = xbmcgui.ControlImage(870, 438, 380, 253, "")
        self.addControl(self.image)

viewer = CamView()
viewer.show()
start_time = time.time()
while(time.time() - start_time <= 14):
    #set url to ip cam image, password auth not supported
    urllib.urlretrieve("http://10.1.1.50/mjpeg.cgi", 'C:\Users\Loki\AppData\Roaming\XBMC\addons\script.doorbell

\bell_icon.png')
    viewer.image.setImage("")
    viewer.image.setImage("bell_icon.png")
    #Define image transparency
    viewer.image.setAnimations([('conditional', 'effect=fade start=90 end=90 time=0 condition=true',)])
    xbmc.sleep(500)
viewer.close()
del viewer

When I press launch it gives me an error.

What am I doing wrong?

I've made a bunch of modifications to the script, which I'm posting below. Python isn't my first (or second, or third, or fourth) language, so please excuse if things aren't as tight as they could/should be. Some changes:

- Accept parameter for cameraID and cameraName. Use case: I call this from BlueIris, which results in XBMC pulling a stream from BlueIris based on the camID.
- The existing image refresh didn't work for me (Window 8, on Gotham). So I made each image pulled have a unique name
- Cleanup the contents of the temp directory after it's done
- urlretrieve didn't work on my pc for some reason. So I switched out to urlopen
- Corrected some paths for images etc.

Code:
# Import the XBMC/XBMCGUI modules.
import xbmc, xbmcgui, time, urllib2, xbmcvfs, xbmcaddon, os, glob
__addon__   = xbmcaddon.Addon()
__addonid__ = __addon__.getAddonInfo('id')




#############
#Grab (/ set default) parameters
#############
args = ['CamID','CamName']
dbvar = {'CamID': 'cam1',
    'CamName': 'Camera 1'}

for item in sys.argv:
    arg = item.split('=')
    i = arg[0]
    if arg[0] in args:
        j = arg[1]
        dbvar.update({arg[0]:arg[1]})



#############
# Global Vars
#############
url='http://IPADDRESS/image/'+str(dbvar['CamID'])
path = xbmc.translatePath('special://profile/addon_data/%s' % __addonid__)
imagefile_template = os.path.join(path, 'camera_'+str(dbvar['CamID'])+'_image')
imagefile_ext = '.jpg'
imagefile = imagefile_template+imagefile_ext
video_length = 14
notification_length = 13800


#############
#If path to temp files doesn't exist, create it
#############
if not xbmcvfs.exists(path):
    xbmcvfs.mkdir(path)
