    Others asked about why they had fixed images and dead video also.

    The video/camera apparently changed hands/ownership, so it is possible if it worked prior, it might not now.

    I looked on the port cam site and it offered no link, or info to troubleshoot.
    Most sites at least offer suggestions. Not PC Port Cam currently. :eek:

    I would say update your "Flash Player" first off. That would be Adobe Corp.
    Try different browsers. It's working with my Microsoft Internet Explorer 7, and Mozilla Firefox, which I have on several systems here.

    Not sure what else to recommend. Delete cookies, clear cache. etc....

    Good luck. Call them and ask for help. :thumbsup2

    sorry to be such a pest about this bear but I think it would be so neat if I was seen on the fish lips camera

    I did click on the "slideshow" and found our cruise date--I clicked on the arrow thingy and then a set of double lines came up so I clicked on those and still nothing happened

    is there anyway you could somehow send me what you are able to see
    I hope this makes sense--Ill send you my email address

    this is so neat Id hate to not be able to see it

    thanks

    believe it or not I got it at a thrift store

    I paid a whole $0.49 for it!!!!

    I know they sell them in the parks they were $19.99 but you got 2!!!!

    I remember you used be able to order park things by calling but I cant remember what it was called
    something like park merchdise--something like that--you could probably call

    the main disney # 1-407-wdisney I bet they could help

    sorry I couldnt have been more help--when are you going? we go to thrift stores alot I could look and see if I see any more

    have a great cruise

    I found this to show what the videos look like.; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VaqrdxDjUEM

    Does the live camera work for you and just the archived that don't?

    Try a work computer or a friends. Did you download/update Flash Player?
    They say the video will work with apple's OS and Android too.

    The live PC cam screen comes up and shows text for me but only for a split second, then goes to the live shot. I can't read it. I figure that is where it tells you what you need to run the videos. :confused3

    Will this site work? These folks produce/run/own the PC camera now.

    There is a support link email on left of this page. Send them and email and ask what programs you need for these videos to function.

    HTH

    Just watched the Fantasy sail away. Got to see my parents, and my sister's family waving at us and holding up signs. Got to love technology! Hope they have a great time, as I watch the Fantasy sail away to the ocean...

    They were on deck 12, but had a smaller one. I saw the big one you were talking about... Those people came prepared.

    that is so neat you got to see your family

    I did see a couple of people with signs

    what did the signs say that your family had

    when we went on the cruise last yr my friend took pictures off the computer screen--they turned out pretty good--you cant make out the people though
    but the ship turned out great

    I have to make sure I have fresh batteries for my minnie ears!!!
