I'm experiencing lots of buffering here too.
buffering and feed problems?
I am also having feed/buffering problems. I will be patient after reading Janine's post.
Sabine, I went back and restored my computer to Oct 18 when I was getting great feed. At first thought that would fix it, but I am getting constant buffering. I am playing at 32kb most of the time. Watching the cam off the Africam popup player in IE tab on my Firefox (2.0.0..
I normally watch the stream in my VLC player, but it can't maintain a connection with all this buffering. Tell me how to obtain my ISP information and all that and I will gladly share it with Jon, although he hasn't answered my note to him yet.
My feed did not start to buffer until the evening (EST zone) of the 24th. It has gotten worse each day, with less and less steady stream. I get Pete's Pond without problems, and I have my normal feed to WildEarth (most always choppy for me).
Any help appreciated!
Hi Auntie Lyn. I'm so sorry to hear (& see) your video viewing/buffering problem. I contacted Admin and asked if there was possibly something on their end. And they said that everything is "A ok" from their side. I watched live, what you have recorded and had a nice smooth feed. I talked with blueeyedlibra early this morning and she is having a buffering problem as well. Fani's buffering seems to have subsided. I wish I could tell you how to fix, but it seems to be random. Maybe there are more having the same problem and we can work it out together. If there are more members with this problem, hopefully we can keep this thread going and find a common solution for you guys. Have you down a flash players update lately? Just thinking out loud.
Most of us in South Africa are having problems with our adsl feed lines, it is possible that Africam have the same problem the problem is with our fixed line supplier.......They say they are working on it, but this is Africa and this could take time, no competition for them no reason to hurry.
I get about three secs max before mine buffers
Here is a video of what I am getting off the cam. This was shot at 2:43pm CAT (8:43am EST). Help????
Well, after all my buffering problems yesterday, I spent a good portion of my time cleaning out my hard drive, running adware removal programs, defraging the hard drive, generally freeing up memory and disc space. Finally get back on at 7:30pm CAT today and have had some really severe buffering still. I have no idea what is going on. I had no problems with the cam before 4 days ago? I'm not seeing anything from Africam regarding the down time of the cam earlier (apparently about 6 hours today), and have no idea if this buffering has something to do with the problems regarding Africam reported by Ms.Charlie or what. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance for your help.
Fani, give me back my feed!
Well, maybe you can have it now... I spent most of the afternoon, cleaning up my hard drive, running spyware removal programs, and freeing up some memory. Just got home from an evening at my parents, and so far the cam is smooth. The audio is horrible, but that has become more normal than not. Did you ever find out what your problem was/is? I hope that what I accomplished today helps in the long run.
LOL Auntie Lyn ...I think I got your connection...I had over a week severe bufferings and suddenly before three days it runs fine !!!
It happens often to me ...without any changes in my system...It buffers for several days and without change anything again it starts to run fine....I couldn't find what's wrong until now ...As the same time other cams run well ...
