Default Town Square webcams

I was wondering about the possibilty of changing the the view/placement of the Lake Sumter Landing webcam. The Spanish Springs webcam is great! But to be honest the LSL webcam is a bit boring. Very little chance of watching the carts go around the square and very little people watching in general. I would like to see a view similar to SS, being that it is not straight on, but at an angle and much higher.

I'm not sure that moving that camera would work. It is located directly across the street from the part of the square you can see, high on the building. If it is moved, you will not be able to see action in the square. It's the set up of the streets, the square and the proximity of the camera to that square.

The one in LSL is also a future cam. The time shown is one houre ahead of real time.

Take a look now to see who will be in the square.

The web cams are Axis security camera. The one at LSL is a Axis 231 PTZ and the one at SS is a Axis Q6032-E. And yes both can be pointed, tilted and zoomed in onto a location but NOT by viewers. When I was still working I would take a peek at the cams during my lunch hour and on a few occasions I caught the IT staff playing around with the cams. One day they zoomed in on a young babe unloading her van getting ready for Market Night at SS. The next day they were checking out what was being served on the tables at Margarita Republic.

Check out these two URL's and make sure the Stream Profile on the SS cam (above the image at the upper left) is set to Motion JPEG. On the LSL cam make sure the Video format is set to Motion JPEG. Have a big monitor then just click on the rectangle in the blue button below to view the cams full screen. ESC key will return things back to normal.

Live view - AXIS Q6032-E Network Camera

Live view - AXIS 213 PTZ Network Camera

Have Fun

THANKS VG! That is sooooo much better than the tiny portal. Still can't see everything I want to in LSL, but what I can see, I can see better than before. Sometimes during my mundane work day a peek in at the folks in TV goes a long way.

Next time I make it down to TV I'll buy you a beer.

The IT group use to move the cams to show the street during a parade at SS and some times at LSL but not as often. I guess that is something that has gone away, see posting regarding no parades in 2013 for more details.

How do I copy and save those two link addresses for the cam viewers? Would like to use those vs the one on the Village page.
Thanks

A couple of ways you can hang on to those links - - - when viewing each:

- save them to your Favorites/Bookmarks

- highlight and copy the link(s) to a Word file (or to whatever you feel is most convenient for you).
