Our first online webcam is currently accessible for testing.
http://www.albufeira.com/webcam" rel="nofollow - http://www.albufeira.com/webcam

The camera is fixed and showing part of the «Strip» (Rua da Oura).
We're not sure how it's going to behave if we have many visitors at the same time, so you might get an error message or very slow motion.

If this works out satisfyingly, we plan on placing other webcams in other locations in Albufeira. Maybe around Fishermen's Beach and Peneco Beach. You know what to do to support this project ;)

Great news and well done!
That said, at the mo, I can't view, guess it's getting bombed with hits, I'll keep trying, many thanks to all concerned.

You can try to refresh the page after a minute or two to see if you can access it. I just did and manage to view it as simple user after one page refresh.

Whip Woo excellent, well done Clap. I wasn't even asked for a password either. I am on internet explorer on main computer and when it refreshes the picture goes blank and then reinstates itself. Maybe it will be better on my laptop with firefox & Google Chrome

Date Posted: 29/March/2012 at 15:49
I'm on Google Chrome but I suspect now, here at work, it's some security setting on our server, I'll get I.T. on the case!
In the meantime I'll have a look from home later tonight.

Neither can I. 
Loaded Google chrome instead of Internet Explorer but it still didn't work so went back to internet explorer.  (At least I can still get the Hollandaise webcam without any problem).

Regarding the webcam, well done to all concerned. Thumbs Up  I intend to use this regularly.

Pete, I'll miss the old version of The Cottage, but the new location will be more convenient for us to use anyway. Good on you and all the team. I hope the deal goes through smoothly this time.

@ Admin : What kind of streaming software are you using for the webcam ???
I have a few cctv cams hangin and could possible stick one or two online...
That is if my connection allows the traffic,without slowing down the line too much

Yes there is some progress. We should have the location confirmed soon, somewhere showing "Praia do Peneco"...! It's  now a question of choosing and acquiring the equipment and making the installation and some testing. I won't give any date since it's not completely depending on us.

weather was far from grim and tbh the webcam doesnt really do it justice, it was very busy at the start of the week and still as hot as 24 etc in evening on thursday although it seemed cold compared to 39c on the ourapharma screen at 7pm on monday!!
