Congratulations Ken! Would love to see the photos of your site. Hawks, this was my first season where they were an issue. No answers.

Re: Season Two of the PMCA's Nest Cam is now live!

J,

I would love to see photos plus how you livestream to the internet. I can see fine on my wireless laptop but can't figure out how to upload to Ustream or Youtube livestream. Any help would be appreciated. Don't know if windows 10 is part of the problem.

Thanks,

Gene

Re: Lowering during wind

Didn't know other Lawrencians were on the forum.
Depends on your setup. I've experience 80 mph and have done alright. Sounds like you have everything under control.

sssSmoking, I'm sorry, I'm talking about uploading to Ustream.tv to share with others. I can get sound on my computer and television but am unable to livestream on the internet.

Look for purple patches. 30 days after the ASy's is an average.

Windows 10 doesn't allow audio from the HD camera to be uploaded.
It's fine for your tv, but you can't share audio to the web. Bummer, I bought the HD camera.

Re: DebA on the scout report! Kansas

Congratulations DebA. Isn't interesting that the HOSP's show up as soon as the martins arrive?
Lousy cold and wet here in Lawrence also. Should be nice this weekend.

Re: I posted this a year ago today from Quiet Waters Park

When trying to attract martins, the best feeling in the world! I remember the feeling I had the first time a subbie landed on my housing.

Hi Richard, In order to connect to your computer you'll need a DVD Recorder. Forum rules don't allow manufactures names but you can source it online.

Re: Old newbie

Power lines are a plus. Martins use them to perch.
Keep it simple in the beginning. Find the most open place, purchase a couple of gourds from the PMCA shop add your house and control House Sparrows and Starlings. It sounds like you know more than most who put houses up. Give it a try.

I have the camera but am unable to livestream the audio to Ustream. I think it's a Windows 10 issue. Video yes, audio, no.
I think folks would like audio when watching these cams.
