Report Cams Down and Forum Errors

Post by jkr » Sat Feb 10, 2018 12:07 pm

The purpose of this topic is to make an announcement or make a report when one of our cams (Delta 2, Harrison Mills, Lafarge or White Rock) has gone down, when the cam has gone up again, and if you get a Forum error.

Procedure if one of our cams is down.
First, please add a post at the end of this thread, saying which cam (or cams) are down, and what time they went down (or you found them down).

If the cam that is down has a second camera on site please check to see if the second cam is working. If only one of them is down, we can rule out a power outage at the site.

Please note that Ken is not always available between 10 pm and 7 am pacific time - so if you post at 4 am, you may not get a reply until near 7 a.m. or later.

If it's between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m. and you don't see a post in 5-10 minutes from someone saying they're contacting Ken, and any of the folks who have volunteered to call Ken are online - please send one of them a PM to let them know there's a problem. Some of us may be available, but might not think to check the Cams Down thread.

People Who Have Offered to Contact Ken
The following people have agreed to contact Ken when available.

jkr

If a cam is down and you see one of us online, please send a PM so we'll know to check the "Cams Down" thread - keeping in mind that we may not actually be able to do anything even if we are online.


Procedure for Calling Ken

1) If you're not in BC, check to make sure it's between 7 am and 10 pm at the BC coast. (BC has two time zones)

2) check to make sure the cam in question is still down and if one or two cameras on one nest is down.

3) if you have time, check all the other cams; if an unrelated cam is down, that saves a later phone call and Ken can reboot them both at once.

4) post here that you're calling Ken; refresh your browser after you post to make sure no one else posted just before you

5) call Ken (details will be provided)

6) post the result of your call so folks either know all is now well - or when Ken might be able to look into the problem

To Check for Power Outages in the BC Area

Why Some people Can See the Cams When They Appear to be Down for Others
We have a zoom team who have been given links that let them access the cams directly and control what we see. They are able to see the cam to control it and what they see is the stream before it goes to distribution.

Thanks, Bev!

I just spoke with Ken and he'd like us to stop zooming since it may be part of the reason the embedded cams are going down.

I'd also like people to continue posting whenever the cams go down and when they come back up (or when you discover they're down or back) - I'm curious if the pattern will be the same without us being in the cams. I'm thinking we may want a separate temporary thread for those reports, though I'm not sure where it should be - thoughts? Thanks!

9:00 am
Both Harrison Mills cams went down and came back a couple of times, and are now showing Live Stream offline.

9:04 am
South cam is back up but doing a lot of buffering (brief white spinning circle and no sound); North is still down.

9:20 am
South cam just went down.

9:22 am
South up for a second, then back down again.

I'm away from the computer for a while.

9:05 Both cams at Harrison Mills just went down again (sigh)

No one was zooming. JudyB was in south cam at 8:15 for a few minutes just to see if it would come up.

9:25 Cams back up at Harrison Mills but the south cam keeps getting a spinning circle.

9:32 Cams down again. I give up!

Thursday evening Cams were up and down a few times tonight and they just went down again at 9:13.

9:10pm.............The embedded cams have had a lot of spinning circles for the past while..............I am noticing that the embedded cams were running 2 minutes behind the zoomer cams, but that has now increased to 5 minutes behind.

2:21pm...........Was on zoomer cams for less than 1 hour and all cams went down 3 times. The first two times they stayed off for only a few seconds, but the last time was a couple of minutes. And when they came back on the E embedded cam, when on YT............was showing video from days ago. But on the regular screen it was fine.

2:23pm...........I see the cams just flicked off again but seem to be coming back on now.

7:35 am - Delta 2 Cams are all down. I logged into the cams around 7:02 am and within 15 minutes they went down three times. I have since logged off, both cams are on the nest at this time.

The Harrison Mills cams have been down all day except for 2 5 minute spurts. The second time just long enough to see a brand new eaglet out from under dad and tangled a bit in moss. We have no way of knowing if fish are coming in with the river being so high. Something needs to be done. This frustrating and embarrassing.

3.56 am (Delta time) The Delta cams are cycling on and off.

7.19 cams cycled on and off the forum and the zoomer cams stayed up but were frozen and then very sluggish to respond so have logged out.

The Harrison Mills south cam says it's live, but it's not. It's currently 6:14 a.m. local time, but the time on the south camera says 5:33 a.m. I also see a spinning white circle.

2:34 pm - Delta 2 Cams (both Zoomer & Embedded) went down 3 or 4 times, three of those times were one right after the other when they went down, came up again, then went down again. Luckily the last time they came back I had enough time to get the W Cam back on the nest so they are now both on the nest, and I am logged off.

9.41am The Delta cams both froze, went off then reloaded whilst I was zooming, so I logged off once I got them back They were freezing just prior to going off.

Hi...the South embedded cam is down for me at HM. I thought I had got it up before I left over an hour ago, but the time on the cam still shows 2:41pm and I am getting the dreaded spinning circle.

Thanks..

Delta 2 Cams going off and on. I had logged into the zoomer cams at 2:05 pm and at 2:17 pm the cams went down, along with the embedded cams. They came back but then went off and on several more times. I eventually got both cams back on the nest around 2:30 (had to wait for the cams to come back but they didn't stay on long enough for me to get them back properly on the nest). I am now off the cams.

Hi - the South embedded cam at HM is down again....spinning circles. Time on the cam shows 3:33pm so guess it has been down since then.

Thanks!
