Sub_title: Videosurveillance

I share my motion compiled in wary 5.3 from a source snapshot of January 2012. Install the package and open with geany /usr/local/etc/motion-dist.conf: disable sql by inserting ";" at the begin of the lines with sql config data, disable SDL, disable saving process id, set on daemon mode, modify what you need and save the file in the same location with name motion.conf. To launch motion open a terminal and type:


To kill the process:

ps|grep motion
kill "pid-of-motion"

Recording in /usr/local/apache2/cam1.
With some webcams you need libv4l or v4l-utils and you must launch motion in one of the following ways:

LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so motion


LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l2convert.so motion

Report your testing.

I have newly compiled motion for wary 5.5. In wary 5.3.92 I had to revert to ffmpeg of wary 5.3 that's to say I have installed ffmpeg-20111002-w5c.pet and ffmpeg_DEV-20111002-w5c.pet from repository:


I have realized that in wary 5.5 BK recompiled ffmpeg and now the following pets will work without reverting to ffmpeg of wary 5.3.

Follow the same instructions of the first post.
