Troubleshooting playback issues

These cameras have been made possible with funding from Lancashire Environmental Fund, and are powered by Streamdays. 

You'll need to click play on each camera for it to start playing, and if you leave the screen, they'll pause again.

Why doesn't it work on Flash Player?

The live streaming is no longer compliant with Flash because Adobe is phasing out the Flash plugin. Unfortunately, not all browsers are fully HTML5 compatible. For example, you may find that on one mobile device the Google Chrome browser will work fine, but not on another mobile device; the reason for this is that different devices only have certain versions available, which again makes some devices compatible and others not. 

Streamdays recommends that users ensure their device and browser are up to date. 

Samsung users

Please try the native built-in browser which is called 'internet', that is also compatible. 

Android users

Both Firefox and Samsung internet seem to work.  Google Chrome and Microsoft Bing appear to be incompatible. 

Mac users

If your playback settings don't allow the option to enlarge the screen to full, please update the Safari browser on your Mac to the latest version which should resolve the issue.

If you're still experiencing playback issues please email us at marketing@lancswt.org.uk and we'll do our best to help.
