This was for 2006. For 2010, we're doing our own live feed here. Check out Live in Meron, 2010!
Lag B'Omer is over in Israel, the Live Links below are now DOWN. G-d willing, we'll see them again next year. R. Nati was there and took some pictures, hopefully we'll be able to get them uploaded in the next couple of days.
Live from Meron - Click Here! (Free link) (the link has had a few outages, if it doesn't work, try again 5 minutes later.)
Note they switch between different camera views. Live from Miron on Lag B'Omer, how cool is that?
Arutz 7 is also offering a live Miron video link, though they're charging $10 for it (less if you're in Israel and go through the hebrew site.)

Update: (Late afternoon) R. Nati just called, he's there and just finished praying the afternoon prayer on the mountain by the holy cave where Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai learned the Zohar and hid from the Romans for 13 years, together with hundreds of others. Awesome kedushah.
Update: (Night) R. Nati reports- "The bonfires are lit and the dancing is being led by the Boyaner Rebbe, shlita. He's dancing together with 80,000 fellow Jews. Imagine being at a Rebbe's tisch, the intensity, the kedusah, the ahavat yisroel, times 100! We're leading the charge to open the gates of Shamayim to our tefilot!"
Update: (Morning) R. Nati says, "Though bruised and worn out from a night of joyous dancing, now is the time of the deepest prayer at the kever, at least for me. For others, it's still a time of dancing! All night, all day! All those who sent requests, thank you, it's an honor to be able to carry your requests for you. May Hashem answer the prayers of all Klal Yisroel. While many are already leaving, worn out from last night, buses continue to arrive with those coming to spend Lag B'Omer at the kever of Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai!
