Motion - Bug Report 2005x 01x 10x 202519

BUG: Segmentation fault

Calling motion with a netcam I get a segmentation fault. In the standard motion.conf I only put a ";" in front of the "videodevice" And "tunerdevice" and add the address of the webcam and username/password Using Sitecom wireless IP camera

Test case

Follow up

  • What patch version are you using ?
  • What are exactly the netcam_url and netcam_userpass ?

Please could you do a bt full to get the stack trace ? (if is possible go to frame , i.ex: frame #2 , where the segfault happens )

Not a big different, just one additional line output then the same fault. Just to be sure that I use the same source: I've installed: motion-3.1.18_snap9.tar.gz and path it with motion-3.1.18_snap9-netcam-pre2.diff.gz

Here is the result from gdb:
