What exactly is the problem with the Chania Harbour Webcam? It has been down for weeks, and now with an apology and a promise that it will be restored. We poor souls in dull Britain (although it is sunny today) love to watch the local people pass by the cafe sante, see the beer truck arrive etc. It confirms that our beloved island is still there and helps get us over the 50 weeks of the year when we are not on holiday there. If it's question of cash, perhaps other forum members who feel as we do could start a "Restore Chania Webcam" fund.
Only 4 more weeks to go and we will be there. Hooray B)

Yes it has been down since mid March. I did send them an e-mail but got not response.

Only 7 weeks and we will be there too.

I'm afraid somebody might have discovered that the European laws regarding privacy cover fixed webcams as well. I used to check out a webcam in Copenhagen, but it had to shut down because it was placed too close and people could be recognized.

I was very pleased to discover today that the Sfakia webcam is back up and running again from a different location...
