Another Camera "Live Stream"

Dear Harbor Cam Friends,
Thank you for all the comments that I have received on the new Live Streaming Camera.  I do listen to suggestions and critiques and try to make adjustments when possible.   I can read between the lines your love for Duluth and the harbor and I appreciate that, since I feel the same way.

Technology has been advancing rapidly and although not perfect, it is now possible to "virtually" stand on a rooftop or hillside and get the feeling that you are truly here.

I have now upgraded a second camera for Live Streaming. This camera, located on top of the Great Lakes Aquarium, is a high resolution view of the Aerial Lift Bridge that also includes sound.  A truly live view, with sound has been a dream of mine for a long time, and is now possible (yet not perfect). While many of us can't live in Duluth, let alone afford some "Hillside" real estate, you can now tune into these new streaming camera for your daily nautical fix.

Although there will always be tweaking and adjusting on these cameras, I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.  Also,  make sure to try out the "Full Screen" feature. Click on the second image on the right to access the camera.

Sincerely,
Dennis O'Hara - duluthharborcam.com

  4. I love the high res on my computer at home! What a view! I also appreciate the low res at work. I don't have a window in my office, and the company doesn't allow us to use bandwidth for streaming, so I use my cell phone as my window. Only problem is, the low res camera knocks out my music player.

  6. I got the LaFarge Cam to work on my cell phone, without knocking out music player. I just disabled to "mobile view" option on the phone, and then put it to full screen view. Now I can enjoy Duluth both at home and at work! Thanks so much!

    1. All cameras should now work on mobile devices in case you can't leave home without a fix.

  7. Love the live cam's really brings back memories. One issue I have run into now though is that the non live cam's when I click on them on the top of the page so they have their own window, no longer continuously update for me.

  9. The old views were much nicer without all the ads top & along side!Now each time you change cameras it's resetting to view to center it.

  10. Sorry about the ads. The adds pay for a portion of the cost of what it takes to operate the website. I do not make a profit at this, but, I do need to finance monthly fees and camera maintenance and replacement.

    1. I will try to program the camera pages so that refresh "only refreshed the image". This will be on my project list since it will take some time to study. Unless someone is a web designer that can help.

    2. Camera pages should now only refresh the images and not the ads.
