Lisa said:Ditto on that Lisa - I think we're all just awaiting the exquisite, considered and honest response from Graham. Perhaps then we'll make some headway - one way or the other - mike and the kidsEmjay Graham has always said that Wildearth will always be free so hope you dont mind if I dont place my bets on the future of WE on your one guy in Europe! LOL
I'd love to prove him wrong! LOL Also, it was my impression that it would be out of Graham's hands if it did happen. I KNOW Graham wouldn't charge a fee. This is a very expensive labor of love for him, that's obvious!
It was only a rumor about the German influence.

As I understand it a timeshift function is on its way soon! so you can watch drives at your convenience. Im in Canada and the drives are very late for me 12:30 am start time or while I am at work. But I am almost certain this function is forthcoming! Others are able I think to record the drives perhaps in the filmakers group here at WE yo umight find more answers.I am now able to view ZapLive ( FLash )
My problem is like alot of other people.... I am on an opposite time schedule from South Africa. I love watching the drives but, alot of the time I do have to record them on Real Player.
The Flash will not record .When I right click to see what my options are... I hit download video to Real Player and it records about 1 second of video.
Please, tell me there is a way for me to record without having to purchase some other equipment. Tomorrow is the day... we lose WMP . Can someone please respond one way or another about this problem or maybe help direct me where to find the answer ? Thank You
I have asked this question over a week ago in flash/stream forum but, I received no response .
I´m Winni from Germany and since two days i watch the live stream the whole day :D
and i have a question :)
i want to ask how the live stream at the waterhole works because the camera changes to the animals and my question is if somebody sit there an control it or is it a sensor or something?
I´m asking because it would be very very nice if somebody creating a gadget or starting a chatroom where he writes in if an animal comes to the hole and what kind of animal it is so you don´t have to watch at the screen the whole time and wait for an animal.
I think it would be a very nice service, because if i´m doing something else i´m every time scared to miss an animal:)
i hope you understand me and sorry for my english, i´m still learning :)
Wow, lots of rumors to dispel.
OK, WE will not be charging for access to the stream either in Europe or any other part of the world. WE will however be selling advertising, there obviously does have to be some form of revenue to pay for this service. I won't go into a long justification, I think it is patently obvious to everyone how the media industry works.
There has been difficulty with the Flash stream for some people. Most of the people that have had difficulty appear to have been on the western side of the United States, although there were others elsewhere with issues. After a fairly exhaustive investigation of the issues, we are pretty sure we know what it was.
Basically there has been a 15 to 20 second delay from LIVE on the Windows Media 9 stream. This delay is as a result of a fairly large buffer in the system. On the Flash stream I chose to reduce this buffer to 3 seconds in order to get as close to LIVE as possible. When you take the huge distances across the Internet into account and the fact that the Flash stream is now at 500kbps, this small buffer began to cause the stop/start effect for those not getting an absaloutly clean solid connection to our server all the time. Effectively any Internet congestion would cause trouble. WE have now increased this buffer to 10 seconds and it appears to be doing much better. Your feed back would be appreciated. Please write to email@example.com WE are particularly interested in hearing from those of you that were having problems and are now OK. Please include your general location in the mail.
for all your flash feed problems. sorry but he posted this email in his reply and asked that you direct this kind of stuff there. also the feed out of south africa is still there so you can watch the drives until such time the flash feed improves for you.
here is the link.
I have also found that clearing out my cache files everyday helps alot with the flash and freeze. I live in Toronto, Canada somedays its good and others its bad. Im just going to try and patiently wait as the improvements and changes move along. Meantime.....no need to leave Cupper - love your photos!
