Webcams!

As many of you have discovered, we have 3 webcams up and running on the grounds this year, and a 4th that will broadcast programming from our Theater in the Woods in the evenings.

To watch the feeds, click the link on the EAA Members Only tab and you'll see links for the individual cameras as well as audio courtesy of our friends at LiveATC from there.

If you are an EAA Member but you see a message prompting you to join EAA when you click the Members Only tab, in most cases if you log out (use the link at the upper right) and then log back in, you'll be fine. If not, use the "Contact Us" link at the bottom of every page and we'll resolve it for you as soon as we can.

If you get to the camera page and the image is completely dark:

1. Be sure that it isn't night time here. (Heh ....)

2. Push the "play" button to refresh / start the feed. (Not normally necessary, but sometimes seems to kickstart things.)

3. Look for any notifications in your browser prompting you to install a video codec - the feed won't display without the proper plugins. View the other posts in this forum and / or use the support link on the cameras page for questions.

Thanks and enjoy!

- Hal

psssst...Hal, Discovery World in milwaukee donated the use of all the encoding devices, the streaming bandwidth (which is currently at about 125Mbps) and well, a few days of my time for the 3 outdoor cameras.

The webcams are OUTSTANDING this year. After being there for 15 or so times and now in a wheelchair, this is the next best thing to being there. I have three windows open for frequency listening and three for webcams and I am enjoying myself tremendously. To the volunteers and sponsors that make this happen, THANK YOU!

wow, thanks Don! I'm glad you are enjoying the cams. 

I'm itching to try even crazier stuff next year.

WooHOOOOO!  I want IN on that.  Let me know, and we'll come up early and help out.  I'm not much good on a ladder anymore, but I can fiddle with gadgets and beat a keyboard with the best of 'em.

I gather EAA Membership is required this year to view the runway cams. That is sad as I am on very limited income and cannot afford it.

Still having trouble with the webcams.  I am an EAA member and can log into Oshkosh 365 but just getting the membership window under EAA Members only.  Sent a message to the contact us link.  A reply in 1 to 2 days!!

Hi Hal, seems they aren't working right now (9:49am Oshkosh Time June 26). Every time I open one the video just stops, every time I hit play it just stops instantly. Not sure if this is just too many people already on or something but thought I'd report it.

BTW nice seeing you working over here, too bad about the Aces team (was on the FSX beta, met you at the Canadian Aviation Expo in Oshawa in 2008).

all cameras are functional, there are about 500 people watching at the moment. 

Claude, the solution seems to be log off 365, clear cookies and log back into 365 members area the web cam banner should be visable at the top.

 Got it working very nicely..

 

Google search for how to play windows media stream on a mac.. Downloaded a plugin for quick time from the microsoft website ( flip4mac ) , set it to open a new window when launching media and it is working well.
Thanks
Jon

Ditto:  

Thanks Hal  for enabling my new EAA membership account to access the webcams.

Just checked them out  .. GREAT JOB  .. A significant improvement in Video  Quality  on last year. Nice to "see".

 

QUESTION: Will there be any sound on any of them. ?

Obviously hoping for sound later this evening from  the Theatre,   but  I hear no sound on any of the other 3 feeds.

Will the AIRSHOW Public Address system, and Airshow Commentary Audio  be  on any of the feeds,  in partricular  the Aero-Square feed.

One can use LIVE ATC to listen to the Controllers  on the 27-09   and  18-36   runway feeds,  but last year, I am sure I remember being able to hear  the Public Address system  somehow....   and that really brought the Airshow to life.

Hal- Did you guys move the AeroShell Square Cam? I remember looking almost down onto the WW-2 DC-3 and the Air Force Cessna/

Mike,

 

Can you please be more specific.  I am also running fire fox 3.6 and have Windows Media installed and I've cleared the cookies.    I tried following your suggestion and I'm still getting a black screen.  Thanks for your help!

Hal Cams are Great!


Wish they were in Sync with LiveATC.net.



Can someone tell me the Aricraft type that is seen on 18-36 cam when it is pointed north? Looks sorta like the Body of a twinstar.... but is a single prop(turbo)


Thanks!


Gary
