Question about the Webcam... Empty Question about the Webcam...

Post by Axixic Thu May 31, 2012 8:31 am

I assume that the webcam is actually "live" and the incorrect date/time being displayed is because the host computer is improperly set and not that old images are being broadcast. Is that a fair assumption?

Yes, I believe that is a fair assumption.

I know it is live because I see the same cloud formations as what I see off my back patio during the day.

New layout - takes a bit to get used to.

Upper right corner - bar labelled "This is the new Navbar Menu" - click it for a pop-down menu. Webcam is the ninth item on the list.

Hey, I found it. I left-clicked thereon, a new window opened, however sadly the screen was not a blank or white screen, there was one color. It was totally black. Oh And its close to 1 PM there.

Oh well, keep on trying :)

Pete, if your connection speed is not fast enough then the screen won't load. Keep trying.

Pete, it's not necessary to LEFT-click on the webcam; right-clicking will open the webcam in a new window (which you are trying to do with your left-click). I can see the Webcam pic plain as day. It's a beautiful day in Chapala!

It's not a speed issue - it is a left-clicking issue. Don't left click on the drop-down menu. The stuff that needs a new window gets a new window.

Yes, perhaps MexicoPete is left-handed.

Well, I am right handed with a right handed mouse and I left click on the bar to get the drop down menu then left click on the link to get the webcam to open in a new window.

That said, right now it isn't connecting.

Axixic, that's funny, we were both thinking about left-handed mice at the same time. Very Happy

Left-clicking on a mouse (regardless of which hand you use) is a browser command to open in a new window. The drop-down menu already has a command to open in a new window. Hence you get a window of a new window which is blank.

I used to work at Netscape, I know way too much about browsers.

Okay, I'm confused.

If I right click on the link I get the standard (IE) pop-up giving me the option to:
Open link
Open link in new tab
Open link in new window
etc.

But if I LEFT click it just automatically opens the link in a new tab.
