Webcam Thassos Potos Beach

On this page I give you information about the webcam of Potos - Thassos. Technical stuff, known issues und the location of the camera.

The camera is located at House Sotiria directly on the beach of Potos. You can see it at the end of the promenade on the roof of Pizza Irene.

The cam is mounted on the 3,5th floor of the house and was quite difficult to mount. I'd like to thank my friend Jannis from Mythos Bungalows who helped me a lot mounting the camera.

Because of a dedicated internet connection the camera shows fluid live video of Potos Thassos. Although we got the best available connection, we have no warranty of bandwith. Every now and then the connection struggles. The stream is outsourced to an external server which mulitplies the stream to unlimited visitors. Using direct access to the camera, we wouldn't have fluid video beginning with two visitors. But if the internet connection is not stable and too slow, even one stream can be too much. In this case you will see a destroyed picture with large grey areas. To avoid this we would have to reduce the image size, frame rate and bitrate until we get a poor quality picture. I tried plenty of settings. I think I found a good compromise now. The camera itself could show Full HD. But we are in Greece and have to deal with the connection. In case OTE brings faster connections we will upgrade the quality.

Although the camera can move 360° I show only the beaches and the bay of Potos. I do this to respect the privacy of the people around. The camera would directly film inside the windows and balconies. Maybe we do a chat evening one day where I will manually control the camera. Then I can show you the amazing remaining part of Potos and the mountains of Thassos.

Sometimes the picture jiggles. Of course the reason can be strong wind. But mostly this is the reason:

Maybe I find a solution for this problem too.

Of course the picture quality in the night is not like in the daylight. There are different settings to improve the image quality. The camera has IR-light. We see b/w image within 50m. The rest ist completely black. The current setting shows color image with medium WDR. That means, it is a compromise between too dark and glaring. The quality is quite good from San Antonio beach over landing stage to parking place. The Limenaria Bay is a problem. I keep on playing with the settings and change them every now and then. So you will see the possibilities.

Du you like the cam? I would be happy if you let a comment in the Thassos-Forum.
