This year there’s a new streaming provider for the Pittsburgh Peregrine nestcams at the Cathedral of Learning and Gulf Tower. The video links are found on the National Aviary website with streaming provided by Ozolio.
THE STREAM STOPS AFTER 5 MINUTES: Yes it does. Here’s how to restart it.
- If you see a Play button click on it to restart the stream (screenshot below).
- (using Windows) If the stream stops but doesn’t show a play button, press F5 to refresh the page. The stream will start again.
The website explains: “… the video stream will automatically stop after 5 minutes. To restart, just click the ‘Play’ button again, and it will resume streaming for another five minutes. This process helps to conserve bandwidth and reduce our costs for streaming the camera. If you would like to help support the costs of the camera and streaming services please donate [to the National Aviary] here!“
If you cannot see the stream at all and your computer gives you the message below, click on the Activate Adobe Flash link to see the stream. If your browser screams at you that this might be dangerous, say yes anyway. Otherwise you can’t see the nest.
