    Mattercam Controls Restricted For Now

    I just got a message from the Howard Johnson Anaheim folks.

    the controls for the Mattercam are restricted until they can replace or upgrade the camera. I guess it's been breaking down alot.

    it still moves, so I don't know if it is on a random program or controled by a few that have access.

    maybe I wore it out trying to track the Monorails. I used to try and catch the Monorail once or twice a day.

    The screen has appeared black for months on my computer. Though I'm not sure if this has to do with the camera/website at all since others seem to be using it fine.

    Looks like your monorail tracking days are over for now.

    No control .. no problem. I'm just happy to be able to peak in on my favorite place while doing the daily work grind.

    I had problems with a black screen for awhile .. but another program prompted me to update my java .. and it worked again!

    Sounds great to me. I get tired of people aiming it at the wall.

    If that was allowed, I'm sure they'd have to have to close up the holes leading out of the mountain and rename Matterhorn Bobsleds to Matterhorn Bumper Cars. I wonder what would happen if you crashed into the Abominable Snowman? I'd be terrified if he fell on me or something like that. =P

    it's a webcam hosted by Howard Johnson Anaheim. you can reach it through the link near the top of the page taged Forum Sponsored By: Howard Johnson - Anaheim.

    you used to be able to control the camera but that has been disabled.

    I'm hoping that they have at least a control setting to move the camera to view the fireworks every night. So many people aim at the wall.

    Plus, the fact that the firework setting for the camera is off from where the fireworks actually appear in the sky doesn't help either.

    did you know that clicking a point on the screen would move the camera so that spot would be at the center
