Help viewing webcams

  grabster 15:32 15 Feb 2004

Hi all,this link click here was posted recently but whenever i click on a link wmp9 opens but wont play the content.
it shows an error stating error opening server/server busy or just cant open server.
can i play these webcams through any other medium than wmp ?
my web settings ,proxies are all set ok its just these url's that give me problems plus the odd other webcam i stumble across.
I have winxp home and IE6 installed.

Are you clicking on the modem speed you want to download. wait for media player to load and you should be getting a picture, I just clicked on Key west duvall st as was there last week works just fine

Yep,i click on the speed and the error pops up. can i change the player ?

Just tried the link you tried only to get name may be incorrect or server may be busy,fair enough but thats all i ever get,somethings gotta be screwed up on my side.

Tried it- nothing but little textbox- clicked the100k and there were the penguins being cleaned out.

In the text box click LINKS at 300k or whatever and they all produce media player and work.
