Cam Viewing Help

If you are having trouble viewing the cams on Mare Stare, please follow the directions below for your browser and operating system.

Pick a Topic

FireFox, Google Chrome, Opera, and Safari on Windows

Flash Cams

Cams with the Flash icon icon on our cam list pages are Flash cameras. You should already have the Flash player installed (99% of all Windows computers have this player.) If for some reason the cameras don't load, visit this link:

http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

to install the latest version of the Flash player on your computer. Once you have done this, you may need to restart your browser to see the cams.

Unreal Media Cams

To view the Unreal Media cams on these browsers, download the following program to your computer:

UMediaPlayerPlugin.exe

Run it to install the plugin. After you have completed the installation, reload the browser page to see the video.

NOTE: The resize function does not work with this plugin. If you want to see the camera larger, magnify the page using the browser's zoom feature, use fullscreen mode, or load the cam page in Internet Explorer.

Internet Explorer on Windows

  1. Active-X is required to view our cams. The page should prompt you to install the Active-X control automatically.

    When you load a cam page, you should see a yellow bar appear at the top of the page. Click this bar and select "Install Active-X control" from the menu.

    * What to do if you don't see the yellow bar
  2. There are actually two different controls for the Unreal Media Player plug-in for Internet Explorer: one for version 4 and one for version 5. With Windows XP you can install both. Depending on which cam page you load, you may get prompted to install one or the other. Once we upgrade completely to version 5, the older plug-in will no longer be used for XP.

  3. If you cannot get it to install automatically you will need to download and install the standalone Media Player.

    Streaming Media Player Version 5

    Installing this player will also install the Active-X control for Internet Explorer.

    You cannot use this player to view the cams directly. You will still have to go to our Live Cams page and click on the links to the individual cams to view them.

FireFox and Safari on McIntosh

Flash Cams

Cams with the Flash icon icon on our cam list pages are Flash cameras. You should already have the Flash player installed (99% of all Windows computers have this player.) If for some reason the cameras don't load, visit this link:

http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

to install the latest version of the Flash player on your computer. Once you have done this, you may need to restart your browser to see the cams.

Unreal Media Cams

You cannot watch Unreal Media cams on the Mac, or any operating system other than Windows.

 

Windows 98, 98SE, or  ME

Windows 98, 98SE, and ME with Internet Explorer

Windows 98, 98SE and ME users can view our cams using Internet Explorer.

NOTE: Only the version 4 plug-in will work on Windows 98/98SE/ME machines. Our cam software automatically detects which operating system you have, and will deliver the correct plug-in to your computer. Once the plug-in is installed, you may need to refresh the page to see the video.

Windows 98, 98SE, and ME with FireFox

NOTE: While the C-Systems plug-in will install on Windows 9x machines, it will crash FireFox if you try to load a version 5 cam page. However you can view Mare Stare cams with FireFox on Windows 9x machines, because we automatically detect your operating system and deliver the correct plug-in to your computer.

Follow the instructions below to install the version 4 plug-in for FireFox:

  1. Click on any one of our cam pages. When the page loads, you will see a bar at the top:

    FireFox Install Missing Plugins

    DO NOT click the "Install Missing Plugins" button. Click the red "X" to close the bar.

  2. In the center of the page you will see the following message:

    The Unreal Media Player 4 plugin is
    required to view our site.

    Please Click here to install this plugin

    Please reload this page after the
    installation completes.

  3. Click the link. You may see another bar appear at the top of the page:

    FireFox Edit Options

  4. Click the "Edit Options" button.
  5. In the "Allowed Sites - Add-ons" Installation dialog, make sure that "www.marestare.com" is shown in the "Address of web site:" box, and click "Allow."

    FireFox Allowed Sites

  6. Click the "Close" button to close the dialog.
  7. Click on the link in the center of the cam page once again.
  8. In the Software Installation dialog, make sure that it says "Unreal Media Player 4.0."

    FireFox Software Installation

  9. Click the "Install Now" button. The plug-in will be downloaded and installed on your computer.
  10. Click OK to close the Installation Success box. You may also close the "Add-ons" dialog.

    Installation Succeeded

  11. The cam page will then reload, and you should see the video (if the cam is on.)

If All Else Fails...

If you've done all these things and you are still unable to view the cams, you may submit a request for support by filling out the form below.

 

We want everyone to be able to view our cams.  We've been blessed with many wonderful customers and our list of cams is growing.  We hope this information will help you join us in the stables.
