[quote=""Raffles""]You can also use http://www.servimg.com which is the one I am using but as far as I know they don't do videos. But only the members here who signed up when we had the original platform, forumotion, will be able to use them however. Your username and password you used then will get you in.[/quote]

I have now switched to photo bucket as they have an infinitely better system.


Hindsight is what you see from the tail gunner's position. :D

Hmmm, might have to look at relocating the webcams to be higher up with a more downward looking view. The summer sun is playing havoc with the focus and display :roll: :roll: .

Update:

OK, so have spoken to the guys at Axis Cameras and they have given me directions on how to change the setup to handle bright afrternoon sunlight. Something about turning on the Wide Dynamic profile option. Will give that a try when THERE IS NO RAIN IN JOBURG AND THERE ARE BRIGHT SUNNY AFTERNOONS.

The network cable will be installed for HenleyCam East this Thursday morning so hopefully by the afternoon the 3rd camera will be online.

OK, so got the HenleyCam East installed today but found out that the switch being used on the network is not Power Over Ethernet compatible. So getting a switch soonest to get the camera up and running.

I knew it was deliberate because FEJ doesn't know how to do that :bingo:
