The webcams are making a comeback!!
The Tram Cam (my favourite)
Whoop whoop - I got this working again today - look at the fabulous view we have!! On this cam you can see North Pier to the south (left) and the Irish Sea directly in front.
For this one you'll need a username and password:-
Log in to the Tram Cam here
Tune in at 9pm on Friday 2nd September to see the Illuminations being switched on and later in September to view the Firework Championships - where we have a perfect view!! I'll probably disable pan and tilt for the fireworks or we'll get some muppet turning the camera away.
The Ya Barred Cam
Click here for the Bar Cam
You can pan and tilt this one to your hearts content. Have a good look round and if you see some dirty glasses - do us a favour and clear them away.
If anyone is swearing - please let me know
It's been a while since I had these installed - my bandwidth is now unlimited - so it shouldn't impede my normal use much. If you have problems viewing you may need to install ActiveX.
More cams will be added in the coming days
The Kanasta Karaoke Kam
Sing to the world on our Karaoke Cam - I'm working on installing a bubble machine so if you like our guests singing you can shower them, remotely, in bubbles (or a fart machine if you think they're not much kop!)
You can connect to the Karaoke Cam here
Please note....this camera also doubles as the Sun Lounge Cam. It only goes into Karaoke Mode on a Friday night after it's had a few beers.
Coming in the not too distant future...The Can-Can Cam
We're partnering with our friends at the Moulin Rouge to showcase their dancing girls
..and for the end of the year...The New Year Can't Come Cam
Disappointed that we sold out so quickly? Sorry about that but rest assured I'll be strapping a Go-Pro to my bonce so you can see the New Year in....just as I do. You must sign a disclaimer that you won't be counting how many wines I've had
I'm going Cam Crazy at the moment.
Have you a suggestion for another cam you'd like to see? Drop me an email with any suggestions: firstname.lastname@example.org
No....I won't be installing these in guest bedrooms - we're not that kind of hotel! :)
Troubleshooting and Disclaimer
1) If you don't see any streaming live video you may need to install this codec supplied by Panasonic
2) Audio is hit and miss....it doesnt work on cell phones that much is certain
2a) Ive had problems when viewing two cameras at once - so if you want smooth viewing it's probably best to view one at a time and not open multiple browsers
3) By entering the Canasta Hotel you agree to have your image broadcast on our live webcams. If you're with someone you shouldn't be with and get found out - we will not be held accountable
4) No we will not be paying Equity approved rates - in fact we won't be paying you any rates. You're doing it for the "exposure". If you get signed up by Universal Studios we expect a cut.
