You can have a look under the Webcam "room" some of the regular visitors to the cams even have names.

Mods Please help I don't know how to put the link in here to the thread.
I live in my own little world. But it's okay they know me here.

If you spend a lot of time watching the cams you will recognize the different animals if you don't know what kind of species it is just post it in the following Topic :wink: and we are always willing to help you. 8)

Hi,

There is no Flash on mobile devices (Android, IPad, Iphone), so I am unable to view the Cams on my mobile devices.
Are there plans to change the live Webcam Player to HTML5 ?

Sincerely yours

Alexander

Not sure if this is the correct place to ask, but here goes!!

I have ADSL with fast connection, and I have always been able to view the live cams.

However since I got my new laptop a few weeks ago, I cannot view any of the live cams...............just keep getting a black screen and that annoying buffer icon.

Can anyone help please!!! :pray:

Hi alex,

Yes there is :) Thats the short answer.

We have to re-do the streaming portion from the server that handles the encoding as we originally did it in a codec that is not supported.
If I agreed with you we'd both be wrong.
