Hopefully it is a simple fix... :pray: :pray:


The data line to Orpen is down affecting all the online systems at Orpen (including the webcam). It has been reported to the data comms service provider. Let's keep our fingers crossed that it will be resolved soon!

Thanks for the update and good to see that the problem has been fixed, Danie :D

It would be great if we could have Addo cam up and running too 8)

Hooray and thanks to all involved getting Orpen cam back online again :gflower: :gflower:

Also, I see that some other cammers are having image sizing issues like me.
I tried resizing images in Photobucket and Postimage and no matter what size I asked for they still come out large :hmz:
I personally don't mind the larger images - you can see the animals better :thumbs_up:

Please note that the Orpen webcam will go offline for a short while at 14:00 (SAST) today 22 Aug 2017.

Urgent maintenance is needed on the webcam's software to hopefully fix an issue we are experiencing on the Orpen webcam. Let's keep our fingers crossed this will be successful (maintenance done remotely).

Update completed. You will see a few funny viewing angles for a while as the update changed the settings as well. Busy reprogramming the viewing angles again. Should be back to normal soon!

The update fixed the issue we had. :dance:
