CarveMan: Buller has everything in place on all their cams to do this except the ability to get the bandwidth off the hill. I do agree it's a game changer.
Yep, I noticed that too. Most of Perisher's would also be ready. Falls & Hotham need all new hardware but the LAN can handle it except for the South Side at Falls which is still a low bandwidth wireless link (afasik).

Richard: I would not be surprised if we see all the five majors with one or two streaming cams by this time next season.

The game changer enabler here is YouTube providing a rock solid and totally free platform to stream off. Nine years ago Mountainwatch installed ten or twelve streaming cams across the mountains. All of them got pulled after a few years and deployed elsewhere in the Coastalwatch network because the cost of running the bandwidth year round was seriously uneconomic. I would not be surprised if we see all the five majors with one or two streaming cams by this time next season.

climberman: Yeah my issues seem to stem from the fact my work phone is permenantly in 'restricted' mode :(
The live cams are overlayed with the still image first. And require click to activate. This does two things. It keeps the page load super fast and, as we have discovered, it ensures that folks like climberman, who have YouTube blocked on corporate networks, still get the regular snowcam image. A *lot* of corporate networks have youtube blocked. They need an alternative. I think it works pretty well. It also allows those who don't care for the streaming image* to not waste bandwidth on mobile phones.

Richard: actually, the streaming cams are not on mobile on the Thredbo site - they hide the streaming cams on mobile devices Either way, your work restrictions are causing me to rethink how I display the streaming cams on here. I now know what scenario needs the original still images.

OK makes sense :) Thanks for looking into it.

I saw the snow maker hold out his hand to catch the snow a few minutes ago.. suspect secret technical business going on
