5. I can't see the St Andrews webcam, is it broken?
Occasionally the webcam is down for maintenance, but in general if you can't view it there are two possible causes - 1) your browser in NOT Java enabled or 2) the camera is very busy and you are being forced into an extended queue. The active queue normally holds about 20 concurrent users - beyond that you may see a message which says 'too many clients' in which case you should try later.
If you are using Windows XP, Java VM may not be installed by default, and you may not see the cameras. If this is the case, please install it.
Most browsers above IE4 should be java-enabled. Sometimes if you are logging on from your work, a firewall or other inhibitive precautions on your network may disable access. You can email us if you continue to have problems on firstname.lastname@example.org.
