.... on my new iMac? I have tried Safari and Firefox, I have the latest Flash player, but cant get it to work. What do i need to do?
I have been trying to watch this, among others... http://www.earthcam.com/usa/newyork/timessquare/index.php?cam=lennon on Cams 1 and 16.
I can view the webcams fine. I can also view the streaming video if I boot into Win XP.

Help!

Allan

It appears Cameras 1 and 16 use some kind of Windows Media 10 streaming that isn't supported by Flip4Mac (at least I couldn't get it to work).

The other cameras are using the more flexible Flash streaming format, so those seem to be OK.

Unfortunately, this may be one of the areas where even Flip4Mac can't deal with the video. I'm at a loss. All I can tell you, is that I'm also seeing the same problem as you are.

Yet another reason why site devs need to use more widely accepted formats instead of proprietary ones.
