Menu Changes - I have been making a few changes to the site to make it easier to use from Mobile divices. Better for some than others, but it does make the menu choices easier to read.
Huricane Damage -
As you know, we have had a bad huricane season. This has impacted many of the webcams on my site. I'm sure getting the webcam
back up is at the low end of priorities for these locations. Wish them the best, and look forward to seeing the cams in the future.
In the hardest hit areas, I will try to mark those I see back on-line with a check mark. If you see one on-line I should mark
please let me know.

Key West Cams -
One of the major webcam providers in Key West is in the process of replacing and upgrading their current cameras. As a result
many of their current cams have been down. They have said the new cams should start to go live within the next couple
of weeks, but have not seen any yet. As soon as I do, I will update the site.

BOB Capture Change -
The service I use for allowing us to upload and save screen captures is making changes to their product.
Soon you will see a change in the format of that page. Sorry if it causes any problems but this is beyond my control.
One of the features no longer supported is the date and time of last update. I know that is very useful.
I will try to come up with an alternative for you to easily find new updates.

Need New Cams -
I know you must check out webcams on other sites. Wouldn't it be nice to have them in one place? Please drop me a note on other
webcams that you think would fit our mix. Also, if there are webcams already on the site you feel should be added to the BOB matrix, just
let me know.

Winter Cams -
Over the winter months, the action on the beach seems to slow down. I've tried to add more from Brazil and Australia. If you
know of other good Winter cams, let me know!

Fantasy Fest 2014 -
Fantasy Fest down in Key West is scheduled for October 17th through the 26th. Keep a close eye on these webcams
as things can get pretty crazy. However, many of the webcams get over loaded and or turned off, so it may
take more work than normal to see what is going on. In the past, the webcam at Ricks is turned off, but
maybe not this year???

Ebb Tide Resort -
The webcam is down, however I did reach out to them for a status.
They are aware and said it was a ComCast problem they are trying to resolve.
Hope it is back up soon!
UPDATE: It's back on-line.

Las Vegas Orleans -
I have updated the page for the webcam at the Orleans pool to include several presets and the ability to do basic PTZ.
The webcam does not refresh very fast and does not handle multiple users very well, but the image quality is very good.
That quality with a very good zoom should allow for some good captures. Please be patient as the image does not update fast
when under load, and some times you will see another persons image while the camera moves around.
Being a pool in Las Vegas I hope we get some good pics!

Site Navigation -
After answering a few e-mails on this topic, thought I would mention it here. At the top of most webcam pages, there is a menu button
at the top right. Clicking on this will slide open the main menu choices for quick site navigation. On the Menu pages, it will open
a list of the major areas on that menu to help you scroll to the right area. Hope this helps get you to the right cams faster!
On a related topic, as some of you have noticed, the Full Screen and zoom options are not available on Mobile devices. They don't work the same on all devices, and it is easier to use the touch screen in most situations to do the same thing.

Wet T-Shirt Contest -
If you haven't noticed, Mango's has a contest almost every day around 6:00 to 7:00 EST. If you are lucky, they will zoom the camera
in on the contestants!

Maui Webcam -
Looks like they have put the Maui Napili webcam on a view rotation with no user control. I will leave the controls
on the page until we are sure it is locked down. Too bad, but still some nice views.
UPDATE: Spoke to soon, seems to still be controllable, just seems to be more hit and miss....
|August 7, 2014||
Edd Tide Resort -
Check out the new Edd Tide Resort webcam. Currently it is fully controllable with views of the beach and pool
area. Should be good for at least a few good captures. Check it out now before it is locked down. Requires a password to control,
but should be worth the effort.
|August 6, 2014||
BOB Refresh -
Added the option to increase the refresh rate for the BOB matrix images. The normal refresh was every 12 seconds.
The faster version does a refresh every two seconds. However, not all webcams have a new image every two seconds,
so some will refresh faster than others. This may also be too much for your PC or Internet connection, but give it
a try. If you notice, the URL for the BOB webpage has a new parameter called Speed. On the faster page, this is
set to 2000 (milliseconds). If you want to try other speeds, you can change this number.

BOB Captures -
Just realized the upload button for some of the BOB galleries did not work in some browsers. I have redone the code, and believe it should now work.
If you have any more problems, please let me know!
|July 14, 2014||
BOB Password Change -
I have removed the password required to see the BOB webcam captures. However, the more hardcore captures from Simonton Court have been moved to a
password protected gallery. The gallery has the same password as that used previously for all galleries. Decided it didn't make sense to make it hard to
access all galleries when it was just one that pushed the limits.
We will see how this goes, but if we start having problems, I may have to go back to the previous model.
Also, check out the Hale Napili webcam (Maui). The zoom and control functions, if you can get your turn, are unrestricted. I'm sure that will change soon, but until then we should see some interesting views!

Share Your Webcam Captures -
I have added the ability for viewers to add their own images to each capture gallery so I don't have to move them around.
If you would like me to add a gallery for a specific webcam, just ask.
The upload app has the capability to use several methods to upload.
Hope one works for you and your device. If not, you can still send them to me in e-mail.
Please try to re-size the smaller images to a larger size for better display, if possible.
Thanks for your updates.
|July 9, 2014||Forum Update - Well I have finally given up on the Forum page, and will be removing it from the site. More hackers interested in posting garbage than people talking about webcams. I've tried to lock it down but it gets to the point it is unusable. So, I've started more of a Blog to post updates and changes for those interested. Please use the contact form or my e-mail (Larry@LarrysVacationWebcams.com) to reach me if you have something to say. I have also left the ability to post comments within the capture galleries. Haven't had a problem there yet!|
