Thank you all so much for your replies. Can you please tell me what "The Lodge" website is? I'd like to try that out.
do you have an alternate computer or location (maybe a friend's house) were you can try to login from? If it works from a different computer/location, compare the settings. Please keep us posted.
All seems to be as it should be from what you say. Was there anything that you did between the time the cams worked ok for you and the time they stopped working such as something to change the security settings that might prevent the hand off from the commercial to the video stream? You are giving it enough time for the change over (up to 1 min). What is your actual internet download speed? you can see that in the right click "statistics" on the viewer when it is playing the commercial. Only suggestion I have for you otherwise is to dl and try to use firefox browser since with that one there is not hand off but direct to the video stream. hope this helps.
edited to add: the cams have had periods recently where they were down for prolonged periods. You might check the daily waterhole chat thread to see if the cams are down when you aren't getting a cam as we usually all comment about the cams being down when that happen.
I've been trying to view the live streaming on the Africam site. I've deleted the cookies, history and temporary internet files. I've rebooted several times. I've checked to make sure I have the most recent version on Internet Explorer. I also have the most recent version of Windows Media player. I haven't been able to see the live streaming in a couple of months. The following are my specs:
OS - Windows XP
Internet Connection - Roadrunner (Broadband)
Brower: Internet Explorer 7 & Avant
Firewall - Windows XP
Virus Protector - McAfee
Username - dawnh44
I've run Windows Update to see if I have the most recent updates. I do. At this point, I'm not sure what else I can do.
Any help you have to offer would be appreciated.
Thank you in advance. Dawn
The cam have been up all the time.
How do you open the cams ? Do you watch through the pop-up windows or through link on homepage ?
