WE is working on the cam view.  Today I noticed that the aspect ratio was 'normal' and that the picture wasn't stretched like it was yesterday.

People have said that the ads are intrusive, so I think we must all see different things.   confused

I have WE and zaplive open and notice that the ads in WE do not interfere with the cam view at all:



With zaplive the ads do cover a portion of the bottom of the cam view - about the same width as the feather border:



Hope this is a useful comparison.  Maybe we could compare views???

Edited to Add that I am using FireFox with ads disabled for the page.

Madrona, your first example, with the ads below, looks like the cam view when using zoom feature (firefox/safari).  Were you watching with an enlarged view?

NO - neither were enlarged.  That's what I get in the normal view screen.

At this time, you cannot enlarge the view. WE is working on that. We are suppose to be using WE to access the live cam as that is how we can generate some revenue. We don't by using zaplive tv. Additionally, ad blockers will block revenue too. But, if you wish to view that way, that is your choice. Until we have some idea of how much we actually earn from ad revenue, I wouldn't be very concerned. Right now, it is about enjoying the fruits of our labor.

I misunderstood this at first, and thought you meant full screen view, which it obviously was not.

You are correct, luv - I checked both views this morning and realize that in changing the view (in Firefox) I zoomed in just enough to get the ads off the screen and into the area below - without even realizing that's what had caused it.  I was just trying to accommodate my view with the cam and chat showing up on my monitor!

So - Firefox users - you can get the ads off the cam view by going to View and then 'Zoom in' a couple of clicks!   wink

This is a great way to view the cam. The ads are  still there, but just below the cam view. Smiley)

in IE, at 125% , the zoom makes that whole page a bit bigger(not the nest view tho) as well, it takes up a bit more room on the moniter, even with sides drawn in and up, but the chat also has a larger text area to read convo and participant list( not any larger in font size tho) , and the adds are then below the nest view as well

Thanks Mad. it didn't work this time, but i can see the nest, missed the eagle. My computer wasn't working right, so i got it fixed yesterday, so whatever was done to it may have blocked my access to chat again. Had this problem last year too but thought that was history as it's been working till today, with the odd tweak. sad

Don't want to make an assumption here but are you signed in to the chat? I had trouble one time and could not figure out why. I had originally checked "remember me" so when I cleared out some stuff one day and couldn't get to the chat, I never thought about having to sign back in. Duh!  blush

If youíre having trouble viewing the Hornby Eagle Nest cam or the WildEarth Djuma sites, try these links:

1) From Karen_in_va, a WildEarth Admin:

http://wildearth.ning.com/forum/topics/problems-viewing-the-wildearth?page=7&commentId=2094372%3AComment%3A272391&x=1#2094372Comment272391

- - - - - -
2) From Firefox Help pages:

http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Websites+say+cookies+are+blocked?s=cookies

I had trouble getting the into Hornby Eagle Cam chat room suddenly today.  The video stream and sound from the nest were fine, but there wasn't the usual place to "sign-in or register" below the posts in the chat room.

I searched around and found the two places that provided the help that I needed and the problem(s) was resolved.   clap

First up, Thanks a huge amount to Doug, Mary Jane, Raptorman and all the others who have put in so much effort so all of us around the world can enjoy and be fascinated by these wonderful birds. As our name (Wedgetail) suggests, we're in Australia and have serveral Wedgetailed eagle nests on our property. We've never been able to observe active nesting, but we've seen evidence that the nests have been used. Unlike Bald Eagles, the "wedgies" don't use the same nest every year. They rotate through a number of nests within their territory. Anyway, the purpose of this (our first) post is to ask the question stated in the subject line. Given weather, spiders, and other factors, how do you manage to keep the webcam so clear and unobstructed?
