During periods of extreme viewer interest in certain one-off events like hurricanes and new ship arrivals, you may experience difficulty loading our webcam websites or be presented with "content not available" messages by our video players. Unfortunately, we have finite viewer capacity and it is not economically feasible for us to provide an infinitely scalable video service. We do provide some dedicated resources for our subscription services and they should provide you with a much more stable viewing platform during these events.
Please note that this section is updated manually and typically within 24-48 hours of a failure. PTZtv staff will have reviewed the failure condition and tried to correct remotely. Check back often for updates if you do not see your camera of interest.
Saturday Nov 19th, 2022 12:30pm EST : We've muted the microphone again as the very loud humming noise returned.
Friday Nov 18th, 2022 : We've turned the microphone back on. There is still a background humming noise but it's not so dominant. if you find it annoying, please mute or lower sound level on your video player.
Thursday Nov 10th, 2022 : We've muted the live sound because of excess noise, most likely caused by all the wind-driven rain that accompanied TS Nicole. Hopefully the microphone will dry out on its own as weather improves.
Wednesday Sep 7th, 2022 : Long-term chronic problems with the local Internet service have again surfaced in the last few days, typically in the hour before ships start departing. The problems can last for 10 minutes or for over an hour. They may manifest as pixelated or smeared video on some devices or as stuttering/jumping video on others. Engineers with our local ISP are investigating.
Wednesday Nov 16th, 2022 : Replacement camera has been installed but a power supply issue remains unresolved. At this time, the camera is accessible but not able to stream video. Apologies for the long delays and growing frustration. We share those feelings (x10) but can't comment further...
Tuesday Sep 27th, 2022 : Still waiting for safe mast access in order to install replacement camera. Most of this disruption is due to the installation of a new weather radar system at the same site.
Wednesday Sep 14th, 2022 : Waiting for weather conditions to be suitable for mast installation of the replacement camera. It's very windy up that high so safety rules dictate the timing.
Tuesday Aug 16th, 2022 : We are preparing to ship a replacement camera to SXM rather than wait for the original camera to be repaired.
Thursday July 21st, 2022 : This camera has failed beyond the scope of remote or on-site repair. It will be returned to the USA for repair or replacement. This will take many weeks to complete and therefore we anticipate this to be an extended outage.
Saturday June 4th, 2022 : This camera went OFFLINE again last week. There are multiple issues that have developed since the camera was relocated to an alternate mounting tower. Unfortunately there are no quick or easy fixes. Apologies.
Update 1/28/2022 : Cameras have been removed from the Pier 66 site today. We hope to return them once construction work is completed, possibly 2024, and have been enthusiastically invited to do so. In the meantime, if we can find a temporary home for an elevated view camera then we will.
Update 1/24/2022 : We have been advised that as construction work is intensifying, power supply will be very erratic and we will need to remove/shutdown these cameras for possibly two years. Not wholly unexpected but nonetheless disappointing to lose the great views from Pier 66. Final removal details and date still to be determined.
You may see periods when the cameras are OFFLINE due to construction work at Pier 66 reaching our tower roof location. We have worked with management at the site to prolong our camera availability and thank them for their continued support and co-operation. However... there are no guarantees that we will be able to maintain 100% uptime.
Tuesday December 28th 2021 : Due to changing business and location conditions, we have reluctantly decided to discontinue this webcam.
December 2021 : In the absence of a working agreement with our partners, we have reluctantly decided to discontinue this webcam.
