CU CAM . Looks like the CU cam housing has shifted / moved. Check out the patrol and presets and they are all way off.
Can someone check with the NORTH cam to see what the CU cam looks like ? And post picture of it. TY
Going in to look now.

It looks reasonable:

Sometimes a camera looses track of where it's "home" position is; I'm going to log in to CU cam next

Thanks, Heather and Bev - I also hope it's back soon.

I didn't see anything on the power outages site, though it may take a while before things show up there.

I'll let Ken know, and check again in the morning in the hopes that it's come back.

5:07 am checking in to see a report has been made for the video unavailable for the embedded cams. Also happening at Surrey too. Note: I was able to log into the south cam without any issues.

7:47 am
Good morning, everyone. I suspect Ken's computer went off during the night. I sent an email to him when I saw Sandy's message, and I see that one of the Surrey cams is streaming, so I suspect that he's now in the process of restarting all the streams.

7:51 am
Delta and Surrey cams are back, and White Rock North. I suspect the other two WR cams will be back soon.

7:52 am
White Rock CU is back.

When the computer doing the streaming crashes, Ken has to open the streaming software for each of the cams and restart it. It only takes a minute or two to do that for each cam (if all goes well), but with 7 cams, the whole process takes a while.

And all WR cams are streaming as of 7:55, though it's very foggy there this morning so not a lot to sea.

It looks as if Delta West embedded is frozen at 12:55 pm. I logged in quickly and the cam itself looks fine, so I'll send an email to Ken so he can check the feed to YouTube.

1:06pm the East-Cam is behaving very badly at Delta2. It may be it can't handle all of the additional movement because of the wind. Both cams do pixelate more during the wind but E-Cam especially.

This is what's happening a lot when looking at the embedded E-cam view.

When looking through the zoomer E-cam it's black screen constantly unless you are using Stream 3. Usually I can switch back and forth when moving it and when it's stationery, but not today.

I noticed that as well, Rose - and I think it is the wind. I'm not sure which cam needed to have its cabling spliced, but it seems to me that could also make it more sensitive to motion from the wind. And I've noticed that the cam shakes when an owl lands on the big sticks attached to the nest shade and cam supports - so there is a bit of give somewhere.

I'll mention it to Ken, but I don't think there's anything that can be done.

Hi Heather and Bev -

It's now 12:18 am, I cannot connect with the cam using the zoomer link, and it looks as if there's a power outage at Harrison Mills:
20221126_020.jpg

The map says it's in Pacific time, but I'm not sure if it is, since it says it was last updated at 3:08 am and it's only 12:23 am pacific time now, but is 3:23 am my local time in Maine; some websites are set up to show the time using the time zone settings of the viewer, and this may be one of them - and since most people checking power outages in BC would be in BC, it would be pacific time for them.

Since they are hoping to have the power restored by 3:45 am, I'll stay up for a few minutes and check again after that. Even if the power is restored, it's possible there's an issue onsite, but it's worth a try.

Looking at the power outage map, it looks as if power has been restored to the Sandpiper resort - but I'm still not able to reach the cam. And there are several new power outages showing - there's a lot of wind in BC tonight.

I'm heading back to bed - will check again in the morning.

Stay safe, everyone.

I still cannot log into the cam at Harrison Mills. There's still a power outage in the area - but it's on the other side of the river from the golf course, so I wouldn't think it would affect the cam (though I don't know that for sure).

I'll continue to try the zoomer link from time to time - and if anyone else finds the cam up, please let me know so I can restart the stream to YouTube. Thanks!

11:50 am from Surrey Reserve, checking in to see the embedded cams are offline.11:52 am checked the zoomer cams quickly and they were fine.

Thanks, Sandy - Surrey, Delta and White Rock all went down, so possibly an issue at Ken's place. I've sent him an email.

I still cannot connect with the Harrison Mills cam - no contact there, so we'll hope it comes back up soon.


Update, 12:28 pm
Ken will be restarting his server, which should get everything except Harrison Mills streaming again.

I just heard from Ken - Delta and Surrey embedded cams are streaming. Ken is doing updates on his server and switching to a newer version of the streaming software, so each stream takes longer than usual to set up. He'll be starting to set up the White Rock cams shortly.

Not surprisingly, I still can't connect with Harrison North - with luck someone on site will take a look on Monday.

The White Rock embedded cams are streaming now.

Delta West embedded has stopped streaming, although the cam itself is fine; I've sent a message to Ken.

I can't decide if some of the cams don't have sound. I'm not hearing much of anything at Surrey, but it's not windy, and sometimes there's not much going on in the neighborhood to provide background sound. I know from streaming the Harrison Mills cam that sometimes when you restart the stream, you need to restart it twice before the sound is sent to YouTube - one of those little quirks.

For the record, Ken restarted the stream for Surrey South, and all has been well with that cam.


Both embedded cams at Delta are pixelating a lot, even though there's not much wind today. I spoke with Ken, and he said it was likely a connection issue. He'll try to get out there and look at those things he can check from the ground, but he's busy tomorrow and there's supposed to be snow the next few days, so I'm not sure when he might be able to get over there to check it out.

All the embedded cams went down a few minutes ago. I checked with Ken, and he's having internet problems. He's working on it, and hopefully they will start coming back up before too long.

(Harrison Mills is still offline - a different issue, and as we've seen in the past, if we're lucky it will be back eventually.)

Embedded cams are back up (except Harrison Mills).

The signals from the Delta cams are still breaking up badly, and will probably require a site visit. Please keep fingers crossed that the issue is something that can be fixed from the ground, and not something that came loose at the nest with all the wind we've been having.
