Apologies for Orpen Cam being stuck at wrong positions and missing the waterhole! :redface:

A good old 'reboot' of the webcam did the trick and reset all back to normal again! Happy camming! :D

:hmz: I see that too. The cam is using the wrong angles during the tour. Something seems to be wrong with the software and presets running on the cam. I have rebooted the cam a couple of times now :hmz:

I have disabled the touring for now. A 'cold' start of the webcam might solve the problem (power down/up) - that I can't do remotely. Let's hope that will resolve the issue as nothing else changed on the webcam itself.

Apologies for the static view for now (let's hope the webcam does not go on its own mission again!

Is there something wrong with the the posting of highlights. I have highlighted only a couple of warthogs at Orpen and that was about an hour ago, yet my name have appeared many times under the highlights

You have to manually refresh the webcam page - the auto refreshing of poster's name has not worked for a long time, also the time next to posters name is also wrong!

The lions may be hanging out around Addo webcam, they've been there on two separate occasions now, so keeping a look out.
