I thought they did that so that Marius can stream every second (or third) day's footage on Youtube? Not sure though... :hmz:


Hi MRO - I think the cam in a better position might help, cause if this gets streamed to YOUTUBE no-one will see anything.

It has been left in a zoomed in position some nights which is much better!

Fortunately it is touring at the mo.. :thumbs_up:

Not sure if this was the reason the light was bad or that just happened today?

Looks like it is being fixed :dance: :dance:

Hello there, it is me again - It looks as though a bulb at Nossob has gone? :(

Hope someone can take a look soon :pray: :pray: :pray:

Hi JJ

I'll check on the Nossob flood lights - there are two flood lights at Nossob.


Danie

Is there a chance the cam and/or lights at Nossob can be checked? This is what we are seeing and it is very poor :pray:

During the day, there are DEFINETLY smudge marks on the cam cover! This may be affecting the night viewing :hmz:

Thanks again

JJ

I have notived that Nossob is often "down" over the weekends.. Like now, I wonder why :huh:

JJ


This weekend, Sunday in particular Orpen is offline :huh: Why always on the weekend?

It is soooooo irritating to see that green screen :twisted:

Perhaps they could put a picture of some beautiful animal or bird, still with the words as is???
:(

Now that is a good idea, JJ ! 8)
Perhaps lions @Nossob, wild dog @Orpen, ellies @Addo and leopard @Satara ?
Probably not practical to have different images though :hmz:

Brilliant idea! I agree on the impracticality of different images - how about a collage then? :hmz:

I still wonder why Addo goes black in the mornings although we've been able to see something until a minute ago or so. :hmz:

I always wondered if it was to do with a generator, since it seems to go off at roughly the same time each morning? :huh: :hmz:

Or maybe just a time-switch? Don't know Addo at all, so I don't know whehther there's a gennie. Know there's one at Nossob, that's why that goes off at 23H00.

That's what I thought (and uttered some time ago) as well. But know we'll learn via Matthys hopefully. Thanks for asking! :thumbs_up:

Wassup with Addo? :huh: Stuck when Danie played with it? Somebody/something moved it? :huh:

Thanks for the information bishop3006!

Ok, I plead "not guilty" :) I was not on the Addo cam at all! SO wasn't me! hehe

What I think happened is that something caused the "tour' to get stuck! When Matthys informed me about this (thanks Matthys!), I logged onto the webcam but could not move it, even with the "touring" switched off. The cam was stuck 'looking' at the pole supporting it!

A reboot did the trick! Addo is fine and touring again!

The Addo webcam is for some reason getting stuck at a specific position wth the touring option activated. I have switched the touring off for now and will try and see what the problem is if the touring is creating the problem.

I have positioned the Addo webcam at a wide angle shot of the main portion of the waterhole.

I'll reprogram the touring again and see if it resolves the problem. Will keep you up to date!

Happy camming!
