Motion monitors the video signal from one or more cameras (video4linux interface) and is able to detect if a significant part of the picture has changed. Features: interval snapshots, live streaming webcam, mpeg generation, database interface, OSD etc.
Great software for Raspberry pi and Ubuntu. 2 questions: Can I switch off the LED from attached webcam? configuration of IP cam, I cannot unchoose Video0. when preview it gives always webcam preview also when ip is selected. what I have to do?
Most features work great! I'm using a Logitech C615 HD USB webcam and motion handles 1080p just fine. My only problem is that "video_pipe" and "Motion_pipe" functions don't work with Ubuntu 12.10 and I need these so that I can use Motion for security and GoogleTalk/Skype at the same time.
