We have received some bad news around Addo Webcam from the technician who was at the site :cry: .

It looks like the webcam at Addo has been damaged as it does not even switch on. It is difficult to assess what the problem is and the webcam is on its way to be evaluated and tested as all basic tests on site pointed to the webcam itself.

We'll keep you up to date with the progress as there might be involvement from our insurance company as well.

Thanks for your patience! Keep on camming as the webcams at Satara, Orpen and Nossob are still alive and well! :)

Nossob webcam is online again. Apologies for the delay and downtime. I added some security around the control and changing angle of the camera and that caused the server not being able to properly access the images on the webcam at Nossob.

The security was added to prevent possible access to control the camera. For the past few weeks somebody manipulated the angle/view of the camera and left the camera in that position causing lots of unhappy viewers.

It seems like this added security measure also caused issues for the webserver to access the images generated by the camera. This is not mentioned in any documentation of the camera and we assume that was the cause of this error. Apologies for that. Nossob is online again.

Happy camming!
