As Lize said in an earlier post, the live video feed from Orpen is still in beta testing phase and changes are still being made to the video feed you are seeing via your browser. Compression, frame rates, bandwidth issues, etc. are all part of the video feed jargon!

A forumite asked earlier about live sound on the video feed..not available at the moment!

Enjoy this beta testing phase and lets hope for excellent cooperation from our four legged friends in Kruger National Park (Orpen) to show themselves on camera - they are after all now live on video and also part of the test..they should put their best foot/hoof/paw forward!

A special thanks to the whole team involved in making this happen - a milestone we have been waiting for a loooooong time! Thanks guys and girls! :clap:

Happy camming and viewing...live!

OK, I've clicked on the link, but I don't get any sort of cam image, just a button that says "save as latest highlight" but NO image :( Any idea what my problem might be? :wall:


tsk tsk, the server knows you don't want nice multimedia wallpapers, and is responding in tit-for-tat behavior :)

Arks, do you have any adblock software installed on your machine as per the posts within the forum problems topic? Are you able to view videos on facebook and youtube?

Will it be possible to get a chat box next to the video? That would be great, then you can chat while watching the cam. :D :thumbs_up:

Hey picnic,

Its a nice idea, but I would be one to vote no for it on the simple basis it would detract from the forums, and the webcams are unison with forums, and would like to see it remain that way.

:lol: I understand. :thumbs_up: But the web cam watchers would like to chat while watching the the waterhole. :roll: Why sit alone when you can have a chat with fellow web cam watchers? :? :hmz: We will chat in silence. :D I don't think that will effect the forum in any way. :wink: It can only gain members. :thumbs_up:

Problem: spammers!
They will very happily use that. I don't think anyone is waiting for that?

Picnic, I would vote yes.
I think it's a great idea to have a chat with the cam.
I also don't think it will distract from the forum. I think most of the cammers aren't a forum member. So I think it's easy way for first timers to ask some questions and redirect them to the forum.
Another use of the chat is to learn something about the animals and there behavior. I can imagine that a lot people what's to now why certain animals behave like that.
And of course to have a little chat is always nice.

What about the spammers, I don't think it will be a real problem. Just make sure that there is some kind of banning system and than it will be okay.
I don't see a lot of spam on the forums, so why would it be different for the chat?

LOL! :lol:
Thanks for the compliment! :gflower:
Today only we have banned and deleted a dozen spammers, so we are more or less on schedule for the day. (We ban two dozen at least per day.)

A chat window would be impossible to monitor for the mods, and we do not have admin rights.....
