Webcam back right now, Thanks, I hope it will stay for sometimes!
Jim Rafferty- many thanks for the info- I thought it was just a problem at my end as I live in a tiny village in central Brittany and speed is very slow on the laptop and bandwidth is horrendous. Many thank
not starting an argument with you Pete, but this cam is low down, a 15/20 minute walk from the restaurant, not really any severe weather or any noticeable seismic activity. I suspect it has more to do with skyline relying on the goodwill of people to maintain this webcam. As for the other, it is also set on a stable platform along with seismographs and other weather detection systems. I suspect cheap cams and consideration given to the more important devises up there for the monitoring of "him". The cam is for public viewing, therefore a secondary consideration, it shouldn't be, taking into account of the fact it is sponsored, therefore, should be maintained equally or it risks losing public viewing. Stromboli has been at it's most active and spectacular yet no cams for us to enjoy it. We are seeing the aftermath of it's activity, a few weeks ago lava bombs were entering the sea and lava rolling down the sides, yet this cam was not working for a long long time so the public missed it all. I suggest investing in a web cam that works ,there are plenty of good ones available. Weather and seismic activity has nothing to with it. I hope you take my comment in good faith :)
other cam down again :(. Missing the most spectacular building and collapsing of cones, boo hoo!!!
sciarra del fucco looks incredibly precarious. Does it pose a tsunami threat or is the sea deep enough to absorb the shockwave? Amazing views. The last thing I saw from this cam, a few weeks ago, was of lots of molten rocks hitting the sea from a beautiful eruption. Glad it's back up again :)
Barbara Lister, these cameras are mounted on an "active" volcano, and as such will be affected by severe weather and seismic activity. It's a credit to Skyline that they and their sponsors are able to get them back up and running so efficiently.
is anyone getting this wecam as "offine" on a regular basis, then every so often when it eventually comes back online there is a lot of buffering- to tell the truth I am getting bored and fedup with the on/off webcam. Please let me know before I take it off my favourites barThanks
when the cams are online they are just great but when they go offline - well they seem to be off more than thet are on- boring
Barbara, lately Stromboli''s cameras are famous for not having both, sound and picture ;-)
lots of Skyline cams seem to have no sound :(((
No idea Ann- but I miss the sound. Hope the cam doesnt go offline again!
Change of cam and no sound......anyone know why please?
Hi all, glad this cam is back to witness eruptions reaching the sea. amazeballs!!!
