I know it's not an elegant solution, but you could get motion to output the video in to a format that works, like avi and then use the on_movie_end command to use ffmpeg to convert the newly created file to flv. You can then set the precise settings you want for your flv file.

I spent some hours trying to record video from my web camera into flv format, but output flv file speed is crazy fast.
I tried to fix it with flvtools -U option or tweaking motion.conf (max frame rate) but still no result.
Could you tell me please if it is possible to get correct timing flv from Motion or if some workarounds this problem exist?
I don't want to write video into avi(which timing is good) and them convert it into flv. I need correct flv output)

Thank U for every respond or tip!


Hi! Nobody wants help me).
Ok. I still can't get normal flv output. But in thread http://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/forum.php?thread_name=w2ya20233a1004142029n6d8ff382p267cdf8d1a31679c%40mail.gmail.com&forum_name=motion-user Rupert said :
"I think I had no problems getting FLV to work on an Ubuntu 9.10 minimal machine with ffmpeg from SVN. You could try installing ffmpeg from SVN instead of the repos maybe (ffmpeg users support wont talk to you if you aren't using their repo version). There is a great guide here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=786095&highlight=ffmpeg+x264+latest"
I followed the instruction under that link. But still not success. My flv's had not proper fps.
Really need help guys.
