picture quality Nkorho cam (edited from watering hole)

My image seems to be on par clarity wise. Could have been having some issues from the storm that was going on there for a while?

I'm on a different computer now and have the image quality you'd expect to see in a night shot. Could be something different between the two set-ups, or maybe if I were still on the other one I might find that the picture is better now too. :shrug:

I do know about packets and packet loss and, the more I think about it, the more I think that could have been the problem -- the other computer had a sluggish network connection all day. Simple things like file saves, etc., were quick enough, but more complex things were taking noticeably longer than usual. Streaming video certain could suffer under those conditions.

I still wonder whether the chuffing sound being picked up could be the vibration of the cricket's wings. It always seems to be in sync when Jiminy is having something to say.
That sound combined with wind/rain/thunder could explain a ittle of the distortion. A possible moisture prob due to the rain may also explain it.

I dunno , just an accountant not a techie.

I wonder if the sound could have anything to do with all the rain they had. Maybe some moisture got into the cam.

That's a good description of what my cam sounds like, jellybean!! Laughing out loud
I just have the volume turned down low right now.

That is exactly what it sounds like :!:

Seems, afterall, that we all are seeing the same picture. Some of us just thought that others were seeing it better. After a few people sent in their pic, we all realized that is exactly how we see ours.

All right, enough about that, let's get on with some animal sightings!! Smiling

Thank you all for trying to help some of us out.

Mine is a windows media player 9...does that mean anything?

I think the video feed is optimized to run on 9 and up, so you should be set. 11 is the latest, you can always try upgrading to that from Microsofts website and see if makes any difference.

Again, here's a reference photo for what you are pretty much shooting for:


This is what my picture looks like. I guess I'm okay then. Firefox just hijacked my IE, so took me a while to get back.
I have version 11 on Media Player.

There has been a lot of discussion about this, so I thought I'd offer some explanation.

The streaming video is sent in packets, about 18 packets per second. Each packet must be delivered within 55 milliseconds. If a packet is delayed any longer than this, it is discarded. If enough of them are being lost, pixelization may become apparent. If too many are lost, the video "freezes" and you start seeing the buffering messages.

Delays resulting in packet loss can occur anywhere in the network, between you and Nkorho Pan.
