    This is awesome!
    Live cam with controls, time lapse, full screen, zoom, blah blah blah.
    Watch construction of the Linq from your chair........or just people watch.

    Thanks for posting this. I was going to take a camera on my upcoming trip to get some new pics for everyone. Now I don't have to worry about it.

    Help me out here, I don't visit the Strip very often. I'm watching the time lapse and the 2 story building to the right...Is that O'Sheas or sometime else?

    The Linq web cam

    Anyone viewing the Linq cameras? They are fantastic. You can move them around, above, close-up, etc. It looks like, as of today, they are moving at break neck speed. Also, it looks like after they take down the parking garage, i would assume, that, according to the Linq pictures, that the walkway/promenade extends from the North from IP, to the South at Flamingo...in other words between both Hotels. And then East all the way back to the Wheel. So basically the middle of the Strip will allow pedestrians to walk from the Strip back to the Wheel (east) with numerous shops, restaurants, etc. along the way. The Linq may be finished by the time i get there the end of OCT.......LOL.

    Wasn't sure if i could post the LINQ...LOL.
    Looks like the entrance to IP is between the IP and Harrah's is centralized making it easier for both Hotels to get dropped off as well as Taxi service.
    And did you notice the new Registration area at IP? Looks like they will incorporate the new IP area as soon as they finish whatever they're working on instead of having a "Grand" opening. So the inside will progress as we go along despite construction, making it as painless as can be.

    Great find! Although I was watching the time lapse - kind of sad to see O'shea's go

    LINQ Construction CAM Flash Player

    I have been watching the Linq and High Roller construction via the Caesars Web Cam on the LINQ web site.

    I can no longer get the web cam to work. It says "Needs Flash Player".

    Long story short, after debugging and verifying I do have a working Flash Player add on, it still does not work.

    I have Windows 8 using IE 10. Anyone else having an issue with Windows 8 IE 10 with the Linq Web CAM?

    I'm pretty sure it is something on the server side.

    I tried on win 7 enterprise 64 bit with IE10 and Chrome. Under IE10 the site says needs flash (BS got it) and on Chrome there is absolutely nothing displayed. No message no nothing.

    Maybe someone else will have a different experience.

    Cam is down. They link the Linq thru another webcamera site as well.
    I tested multiple browsers, it's deader than a door nail.

    Actually, it is working perfectly fine for me in IE (which I generally do not use), but just a black/blank screen in Chrome (my default).


    - Windows Vista
    - IE 9
    - Chrome 32

    edit: actually, in Chrome it is "blank", not black. The frame where the picture should show is clear - you can see the page background.

    The only browser I've found for it to work on for me is Netscape Navigator.
    I check it several times a day.
