Don't you find Manchester is a poor relation when it comes to live streaming webcams. Our webcams update at up to 30 second intervals, that's not a cam but a photograph. Other towns and cities have live streaming cams, so why can't we?

Our 'skyline' cam is a bit naff, somedays Beetham is in it, somedays it ain't! And it doesn't really give a true reflection on the full skyline now does it?!

Exchange Square Cam is a bit pointless, be better suited in Picc Gardens, or Market St tbh.

Sort it Beeb - hopefully, when they move to SQ, we'll get a good skyline shot from there and a nice plaza cam!

Love the Oxford Road cam though - proper city view.

It's a shame MEN no longer do their streaming webcam. They had one pointing towards Deansgate from their old offices that ran at maybe a dozen frames a second, which isn't bad really. I think they had one pointing towards Piccadilly Plaza too, didn't they?

I like the BBC's Oxford Road/Street one too. The Palace Hotel one, on the other hand, always looks a bit desolate to me, such is the angle of the camera. For some reason, it always reminds me of Tatooine in Star Wars, especially at sunset.

Very true. The webcams of Manchester are bobbins. Even the image used behind Gordon on NWT is a bit ropey.

I did run a live webcam of the triathlon in Salford last year, but I'm not in the right position to do that any more. :(
