A new router has been requested from the Internet service provider. Until that arrives, we've installed an electrical timer which will force the current router to reboot every night. If the camera goes down during the day, this reboot should have the camera up and running automatically the next morning. We appreciate your patience: camera maintenance becomes very difficult this time of year as all facilities are closed and few employees are in the area.

Recently, the Old Faithful streaming webcam has experienced longer and more frequent outages since the new camera was put in place earlier this year. We are working with our Internet service provider and park technicians to identify the problem and replace any faulty equipment. Thanks for your patience!

We have incorporated the next Old Faithful prediction time to the streaming webcam page and have worked out some (but not all) of the bugs with displaying the time. We will keep addressing it. When Rangers update the database with the next prediction time, this time will automatically display on the webcam page. During non-working hours when no predictions are made, a message will automatically state so. We will also be putting the time on the static webcam page for Old Faithful. You will notice that the time is not displayed on the webcam image anymore. Our intention is to make things more efficient for staff so they only have to enter in the next prediction time once.
