That url is better :

But now I face another issue with big images .. of 1080pix height
because 1080 is not modulo 16 ?!?!

How can motion register 1920x1080 pictures ???

Thanks in advance

Anyone using DCS-2210 working with motion
With the netcam url http://ip/video1.mjpg it does not work.

In the meanwhile I found this insteresting link that I have to try this evening.

It tells to use undocumented url : http://ipcamaddress:port/image/jpeg.cgi 

I give you a feedback soon :
