Title:
Live Webcam Broadcast of BHS Parade & Dances

Text:
While we have not yet fully dealt with all the technical issues/problems, and are still testing and tweaking, the new MILES CITY LIVE HD webcam has been installed and is broadcasting most of the time. This is a high definition camera view of Main Street Miles City from approximately 25' in the air, one block from the location of the two BHS street dances - and pointed in their direction.

PLEASE BE PREPARED: The primary issue requiring resolution is that Mid-Rivers service cuts out, sometimes with disturbing frequency, thus causing a loss of feed to the broadcast system. We can currently only resolve this problem by, essentially, doing a 'restart' at the camera's location. Clearly, this is not possible 24/7. HOWEVER - during the BHS Parade & Dances, we will be monitoring the broadcast - and should it shut down - we will restart it as soon as Mid-Rivers is operational again. FYI: Restart takes us about two minutes, but Mid-Rivers' frequency or length of downtime cannot be predicted. You may view the Miles City Live broadcast at:

The camera will be turned on 24-hours per day until 2AM Sunday the 19th, at which time we'll resolve the shutdown issue. But it will only be during the two events that will we be monitoring it full time - prepared to restart service, should it be interrupted. Other times, it could take several hours to get it restarted.

After the BHS is over, the camera will be shut down for several days while we make necessary programming and settings changes. The changes will alleviate the need for an on-site restart every time that Mid-Rivers' service fails. This will make the broadcasts available 24/7, save for any brief Mid-Rivers' service outages.

We'll be back with a "Grand Opening" announcement after all issues are permanently resolved.

Special thanks to the sponsors and the milescity.com uber-webmaster, Larry - for assistance in bringing this project to fruition.

Enjoy the Bucking Horse Sale Parade & Street Dances!

A shoutout to two young boys viewed on the cam walking down the street, one threw something at the garbage can,
whatever it was bounced off the garbage can landed out in the street when the boy got up even with it he walked out in the steet retrieved his piece of garbage and put it in the can. Helping to restore my faith in young people.
