I'm new to motion but I'm finding it a fantastic piece of software.
I've already got it monitoring 4 cameras.
My cameras are at the end of a DSL line and I'm running motion on a
hosted CentOS server. I'm a little worried about using too much of my
DSL bandwidth. Is there a rule of thumb for how much bandwidth a
motion mjpeg stream will consume? I have the framerate set to 2 but
I'm curious how motion can limit this. Is it simply a matter of how
many HTTP GETs it does per second?
Also, I'm interested in using a camera that only supports asf files,
not mjpeg. I found a blog that describes how to use ffserver to get
around this, but are there any plans to support ASF streams in the
future? I didn't see it on the roadmap.
Thanks for making such a cool piece of software available.
