Can't See Some Cams? Read Below
Some of our Cape Weather web cameras that have been in service for a long time are running on the original software developed many years ago. Unfortunately, this has created some challenges with certain web browsers that have defaulted security to only allow HTTPS (Secure) to be viewable. Some of the streams we provide are being fed as HTTP (Insecure). The protocol was changed in 2020 and has presented viewing issues but nevertheless, they can still be viewed by using the instructions below. Some mobile devices may not be able to allow this feature. Future plans are to update the cameras with the HTTP feeds to HTTPS but that timeline is unknown. If you need help, feel free to reach out to us through our contact form.
