Mac Users?

I am very new to africam, I apologize ahead of time if this question is repetive, is there an easier way to view the "streaming cams?" I am just clicking on the links and watching it from there....should I be watching it from a different location? When I try to paste the URL in quicktime or windows media it says the format it not recognized....fellow mackers....help!

Yes, it is very disappointing not be able to view the cam. I could view it in QuickTime only if one of the URLs for Nkorho or EP was in my OPEN RECENT. Since they aren't there any more, I cannot see the cam.

 

Would it help if someone put out those URLs for us Mac users?

Exact same problem here, sadly. I love this cam when I can see it!

As a temporary fix, can MAC users view the Nkorho Pan at the following link?

We have mixed messages on this - it works for some & not for others. Please email ryang at africam dot com - he has a central repositary concerning Mac issues. We will probably be posting this soon anyay.

We will also be going thru a player conversion in the following months or so.

Hi ajy. The cams are down for everyone. Telkom, the SA supplier, has been having problems lately. We talk about many things in the Forum Campfire or Wateringhole, including cam status. Come join us. Smile

I have never had any trouble using my mac to see the cameras.  I used Flip4Mac.  This morning when I logged on it didnt work.  I have upgraded the software and it still isn't working.  Just a white screen. Hope its temporary.

I used to watch them too.... I loved it! I could watch the sun set in Africa while I had my morning coffee, and watch the animals. Sadly, neither camera works anymore. I would love to see them fix what ever is wrong so we can watch again! I really miss the gecko that ran around on the screen at Nkorho Pan. Frown
