They are beautiful. I just added this one to my bookmark list of webcams. Thanks!

I've posted this before, but for the webcam fans check out this site: http://zeitcam.com/webcams/

They capture and store time lapses from many of the webcams around the world (including the OBS deck cam). Pretty cool.

Did anyone notice that lag on this webcam is very long?

Thanks,

The image is being uploaded out of a small town in Europe. Yes, that will be slower than a place in the US with a larger internet pipe.

Boy are we spoiled with our broadband. And here comes 4G for wireless surfing!:cool:

Even in some cases with fast download speeds, the upload speeds are very slow. the two need to be in balance and most companies squeeze on the uploads. So, if the town has a slow connection for download, their upload speed could be terrible.

I can now get speeds in the car (at a rest area and not driving of course) that we were happy with 2 years ago at home.

It is amazing, and exciting, how quickly this technology is evolving.

The link I was using stopped working for me. Here is one that seems to be current. The images update every 15 seconds.

You can copy and paste the code below into Notepad or Wordpad and save it to your desktop as ramsau.html. It will show the current image and update it every 15 seconds. You can use the same code for almost any webcam image which shows up as a jpg image on the webcam's site. For instance, the new Balsam's webcam image is at http://www.thebalsams.com/webcams/hotel/balsam1.jpg. Just replace the Ramsau url with that one in the two places in the code and save it as balsams.html. You can also change the title text (between the <title> </title> tags) to match the site. The Balsams site updates once a minute, so change the "refreshCam" figure to 60000 from 15000. (60 seconds from 15 seconds.)

Still producing great images. This is a really high end webcam.

They have had a long stretch of very cloudy weather. It is nice to see they have cleared for a bit.

The annual spring thaw and rains had the stream high enough to cover the rocks earlier this week. But they've had some gorgeous days lately. Have to get back there one day. Maybe stay there in the village for a bit.
