Default Webcams

With the continued absence of the Barnard Hamilton webcam this year, I have been getting my fix from the Sail 'n' Surf webcam but the quality of picture has always looked a bit grey. Not anymore though, don't know what they have done but the quality of the image now is brilliant. Perhaps they cleaned the camera's lens.

Thanks though for providing this great facility, which helps to keep many of us going when back in the gloomy UK.

It works for me but can't explain how
I'm using a 'hand me down' laptop from my Son so the software would have already been installed.
Any IT experts out there?

Once working you'll see that the connection lasts for only 20 secs.
You just need to hit the refresh button on your toolbar to restore the feed [if that's the right terminology?]

I just tried viewing it in Internet Explorer which didn't work. I then tried viewing it in Firefox and it worked on that. Still have to re-load the page every minute though to see a 'current' view.

Not very computer literate me. All I get when I try to view is the hourglass jamming on and then having to log out of everything!!!

Can someone perhaps do an "idiots guide" step-by-step way of how I can view it......please !!!
