Bedlington Live! - Full Screen View

I don't know if this has been mentioned before, or whether there is an easier way, but you can view the webcam full screen by doing the following ...

 

  • Go to the Live! webcam page
  • In the address bar, change the size at the end of the url (normally 640) to the horizontal resolution of your monitor. This will normally be 1024, 1280, etc.
  • Press F11 on your keyboard to put your browser into Full Screen mode and you should now have a webcam view that fills your screen.
  • Save a Bookmark so that you can easily fetch up the page at the new size.

So far, I've only tried this in Firefox. I am viewing the webcam with a computer connected to my TV so the resolution is 1360 pixels and I have altered the url to

http://webcam.bedlington.co.uk:81/mjpg/web?w=1360

Hope this adds a bit more pleasure to anyone viewing this excellent webcam.

 

Edit: Just press F11 again to exit full screen mode.

Oops!

 

Slight mistake - to get the correct url, you first have to right-click on the webcam video then select 'View Image' which will give you a black page with just the webcam image. You can then alter the url and Bookmark it.

 

An added advantage of this method is that you can click on your Bookmark and view the webcam at any time EVEN WHEN NOT LOGGED IN TO THE FORUM! :D

      All they want to do is cradle their newborn baby in their arms.
      But Bedlington parents Carly Walker and Ryan Murphy have been forced to watch from the sidelines as their daughter fights for her life.
      Little Ayda Faith Murphy was born prematurely on March 31, weighing just 4lbs, at Newcastle's Royal Victoria Infirmary.
      Rushed for her first operation straight after birth and another at just four days old, she's battling terrifying odds after being diagnosed with a series of incredibly rare birth defects.
      An almost unique variant of gastroschisis, a defect of the abdominal wall, has left her intestines pushing up into her chest - a condition doctors estimate is suffered by no more than 10 babies worldwide.
      Meanwhile, her heart appears to have flipped over and lies on the wrong side of her chest, while she's receiving oxygen from a machine due to her underdeveloped lungs.
