BUG: 3.2.9 and Logitech QuickCam Pro 4000: captures 320x240 despite a setting of 640x480 although set to

I have a Logitech QuickCam Pro 4000 which has a native resolution of 640x480. Despite setting it so in motion.conf, all JPG captures are still 320x240.

Help would be appreciated. Thanks, Jean-Luc

Follow up

Are you sure motion is reading the motion.conf where you set those options ?

run motion passing motion.conf as parameter :

motion -c /path/motion.conf

I have checked with some pwc cameras ( logitech 4000 pro and Logitech Orbit/Sphere ) and i cannot reproduce your issue

so i bet you are using a wrong config file.

You can alsp check your configuration using a web browser with the control http interface. Enter url http://localhost:8080(if you do it fromsame machine). If using from an other chgeck that control_localhost is set to off.
