We've just checked the code, and it looks like when the Surfcam Replays went live a few weeks ago, the devs forgot there were two timeouts (and made them both the same). Swellnet Pro subscribers should have a longer timeout (eight minutes, compared to four minutes for non-subscribers). I'll get them to put that back in place - thanks for the heads up. 

The main benefit for Swellnet Pro subscribers is that they don't see pre-roll and mid-roll video ads, whereas non-Swellnet users will see an ad every 30-40 seconds (so, around eight times per four minute surfcam viewing).

However, surfcams are not meant to be streamed continously: every second that you watch a surfcam costs us data $$, so we need to put a timeout on the page incase you inadvertently leave the surfcam streaming when you walk away form the computer.
