Last night

We had a big power outage here in Fairbanks. All of the aurorawebcam.com webcams where taken offline. Here is the offical story from the local paper.

 The last week or so

 I have been tracking a bug from the webcam server. This webcam bug will stop the camera and not let it restart. I have contacted my hosting providor and tomorrow we are going to test a few more solutions. This bug is diffrent from the "no input found" error that will happen when you try to changes pages on the website. (which i believe maybe 99% fixed??)

 As always

 I'm looking for error reports under this topic here in the forums. Please give as much detail as you can. What internet browser are using, how often it happens, and how to reproduce the error if you know how.

 

More news to come soon. -Troy

Thanks for getting the cam back up Troy. I mostly use Mozilla and so far it appears to be working good.

Chrome is the problem right now. Try Firefox or safari. I’m waiting on a solution from tech support

Troy, I switched to Chrome and it's still squished version? Hope they have a solution. The Free version is fine with no blank spaces.

Troy - Sat 16 Oct - 21:05

Ok the issue is with chrome. Im currently waiting for them to contact me with a solution. So for the short term you can use another browser to view the cam.

Can you take a photo and email it fo me?

Hi Troy! I'm glad you got the camera back online. I did refresh the page & got the camera view. What I see is a squished version of the image in the middle. There is large blank spots on either side of the rectangle. Hope this helps.

Troy - Fri 15 Oct - 21:59

ok the Aurora image and the live camera are back online. If you get the "Event Ended" message you will need to reload the page. Please let me know if you are having problems. I'm testing new software so I'm not yet if it will work for everyone.
