    2015 AirVenture Webcams - Please use this thread for the 2015 Webcams

    I am starting a new thread for the 2015 webcams. The Streaming Media Volunteer Crew will be monitoring this thread for the remainder of the show for any comments, suggestions, and issues that may occur during this years event.

    Our team has worked hard to get the streams up and available as soon as possible, we know many people like to watch the set up and wait to see the first aircraft arrive. We also have also strived to make all the feeds are as compatible with as many different operating systems and devices as possible, however, we know that there still will be some devices that they will not play on properly (for example, older mobile type devices).

    One suggestion to start off with, if you are having an issue with opening the stream, make sure you either turn off the pop up blocker, or set these pages as an accepted site to allow for pop ups to be displayed.

    Below is a link to the AirVenture Webcam page that will have all the links to the cameras. Note, as of today, the Airshow, Theater in the Woods, and a new Random Feed links are not currently displayed on the page, but will be added to the page as we finalize the configuration of those streams and are ready to make them live.

    Some things to remember about the camera feeds:

    Some of these cameras run on pre-programmed tours and show live feeds from the grounds, and some cameras (like the Control Tower Videographer camera) may display live video of portions of the daily air show as viewed through the lens of a EAA Volunteer.This is not intended to be television-quality broadcast of the event, just a chance to share their view. There will be times when the videographer is moving the camera, reviewing existing footage, etc., where you may not see the show itself. This is to be expected as they are also capturing footage for other purposes as well.

    For the Theater in the Woods feed, this camera displays live video from evening programming. However; due to contractual and other obligations, there are certain events that cannot be broadcast. In off hours, we may use this feed to display other random footage from around the grounds as well.

    Also, if you go to our Livestream page, you will be able to view recordings of previous live feeds.

    We hope you will enjoy getting a small glimpse of the action around the grounds of EAA AirVenture Oshkosh!

    I like the BTS look we get this week on the webcams, even if there are no planes yet.

    My wife wants to know if you can zoom in on Sally's Alley so she can see how they're doing setting up our tent

    Todd, this is such a wonderful service that is provided to us, and your team's hard work is very much appreciated. I suggested to Hal that the towers stay up year round but he was unwilling to climb up the ladder to clean the lens. But seriously, it is so enjoyable to watch things take shape until I arrive in person. I also know 1 or 2 that cannot attend this year for health reasons and they will be glued to their screens. Thanks again.

    Well technically the answer is yes, but one, I am not familiar with Sally's Alley by that name, however the larger issue is, I am offsite, and we are using just about all the bandwidth out of the camera locations for the stream and it is painfully slow to go in and remotely control the camera while offsite.

    Todd, As usual, you and your team have done a GREAT job. Thank you for allowing those of us that can't get to the show to look in and feel even worse (if that's possible) about what we're missing Hope you have a fun and trouble free week.

    P.S. If I could make one suggestion to improve an already excellent service. MORE CAMERAS!!! lol I am kidding, I know you folks are already pushing the bandwidth limit.

    we had a good sized storm blow through the area early this morning and haven't been able to connect to the Ultralight runway camera. The mighty Hal was dispatched to survey the issue and its looking like we have a failed GFCI. We are waiting on on site electricians to replace it...hopefully that's the only issue with the setup.
