About the Archive
Welcome to the wmoaTV archive, the museum's personal collection of multi-hour recordings from our live webcam playlist, wmoaTV.
Started in 2017, the archive contains memorable scenes captured from webcams running 24/7 around the world. Scenes include from snowy mountaintop sunrises to rainy nights among the skyscrapers in the big city to bluebird skies on the beach.
The local offline archive contains over 1,000 recordings with 90+ videos (and growing) currently uploaded to archive.org (initial loading time is slower than youtube - offline download option available)

Slow TV - Slow television, or slow TV (Norwegian: sakte-TV), is a term used for a genre of "marathon" television coverage of an ordinary event in its complete length. Its name is derived both from the long endurance of the broadcast as well as from the natural slow pace of the television programme's progress. It was popularised in the 2000s by the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation (NRK), beginning with the broadcast of a 7-hour train journey in 2009.
Live webcam stream - External camera connected to a computer uploading a live video stream to sites like youtube where it can be watched on the computer/tv/mobile device.
Archive.org - Online internet archive where users can upload content they wish to add to the archive. Crowdfunded, the archive hosts all forms of internet media and allows for playback as well as downloading for offline use.
