Some of you have noticed that the viewer stat is gone from the corner of the fishcam video feed. Because of the popularity of my fishcam widget with Chumby owners, I had to switch to faster server software. The old server would start to hang after it got hit with more than 10 viewers. The new server can get fishcam images to many, many more people simultaneously. Unfortunately, the new server isn’t capable of displaying the viewer count like the old server. I enjoyed the viewer count as well. It was a nice way of measuring the load on the server and popularity of my fishcam.
- UPDATE –
I’ve attempted to make my own “viewer stat” insert for the video feed. It seems to work, although it’s not as pretty as the old one. Hopefully the little tool I coded is stable enough to run 24/7. I guess we’ll see!
