The Live Stream

From the beginning of THE SECRET NUMBER on the August 7, 2009 to the June 26, 2013 the live stream was a "live video stream" provided by a webcam and a Flash Player. In this time the use of the internet through smartphones and tablets increased a lot. But these devices are not always supporting the Flash Player and the live stream didn't work properly. This is why we decided to change to a "live pictures stream". Since then the live stream is working on mobile devices without any problems. Positive side effect: The live stream now works on desktop computers, even if they still don't have installed a Flash Player!

Since June 27, 2013 a network cam is taking pictures of the mobile phone in the live stream every 2.5 seconds and is continuously sending these data to our server. The server, in turn, is sending the live stream data to your browser program. This allows you to watch in real time and check if the mobile starts to ring, i.e. whether you have cracked THE SECRET NUMBER.
