[Beta Site] Why does the surf cam read, “Are you still watching?”

When the screen asks you Are you still watching?, this means you have been timed out of your viewing session. Click Continue Watching (or refresh the page), and your footage will resume.

The Are you still watching? feature conserves high-quality, expensive bandwidth on cam streams that users aren’t actively watching (e.g.: streaming in the background or behind another browser tab).  This is a common practice for live streaming services (e.g.: Pandora, Satellite radio).
