I have the recommended version of Java downloaded...but then when I try to view this cam it tells me that my browser does not support java (???) so I'm unable to see this cam (bummer!)...anyone else have this problem? McD

If I click on setup it requests a user name and password...????

I have the standard JAVA I believe at least that is what I got free off the site and it took a little time to download (web cam) but it came out good and it appears that work is being done to the dock as there is materials and workmen there doing work. I forgot to mention that it is a motion camera. I'm wondering if they are fixing it up so that gas can be sold there next season???

OK...It has to do with installing Active X which I do not have the "authority" to do here on this computer. Thanks RLW.

Just tried riverat's link ( http://64.140.201.230:4000/view/index.shtml ) and it works fine, although it took awhile to load.

Did not request an Active X download.

Default Cams

The Cams at Downing's do not require ActiveX. I purposely selected cams that could operate independent of a specific Operating System (Mac or Windows). The Cams require JAVA, and Java is supported by Safari, Internet Explorer, and Firefox. We also view the cams on our iphones!

well....first a pop-up appeared across the very top of the page that "suggested" I install "axis media control"...during this process I could swear it was an Active X thing (whatever that might be)...a little later there was another pop-up that asked me if I wanted to install "axis RTP source filter embedded" (whatever that is) .. I did both but still no luck, However, I am able to click on "snapshot" and see the view which at the time was Downing's sign and the top of some pine trees. Darn it all! I'd really love to see this cam. Thanks for your efforts shurbinator!

Which Video Format did you select in the upper left Motion JPEG or MPEG-4?

If MPEG-4 were selected, the below appeared:

Click here to install or upgrade the MPEG-4 Decoder.

This is the URL for that page:
http://64.140.201.230:4000/view/view...dia.amp&size=1

Clicking it produced a blank image.

If Motion JPEG is selected, the webcam image is viewable.

Try clicking the check mark (Video Format in the upper left) and then click Motion JPEG

The whole town was without electricity for 2 days and just came on yesterday at about 3 PM and it probably needs to be reset.

I'm not saying there isn't more, but the only 3 cams I know of is the Spencer cam of the public docks the new one at the gas dock at Downings and the East Alton cam. If there is other I to would love to here about them.
It is up and running now, but it takes a long time to pop up on the screen. Just sit and wait and the black screen will turn into a picture, that is you are watching in the daylite.

No not really. It's the time of the day you are looking at it. They have the lights on and it gives a reflection into the window showing the back wall of the office. The camera is inside the office and it picks up that reflection until the light goes off.

There still is no ice at the mouth of Alton Bay. Too much wind I guess.

Default Update to Downing's Webcams

It has been a while since I posted a comment about Downing’s Landing Webcam. We now have four cams set up at Downing’s Landing, Alton Bay NH.

I waited to reply until we had the cams set up on a webpage so you can view them all at the same time. The site has additional information about Downing's Landing and more will be added. Please look around and help us improve the website. Here is the address of the cam page www.downingslanding.com

If you have any suggestions for the webcams, and/or Downing’s landing website, please use the email address listed on cams webpage.

Please remember, Downing’s Landing webcams were purchased and installed by and for the Downing’s. They may be relocated from time to time – the images you see through the cams are the images the owners are choosing to view. Your thoughts are welcomed.
