BUG: No rollover if target file size is limited
I configured motion to rollover a timelapse file on a daily base. The resolution is 800x600. I tried to capture a survillance video of my cats while away.
The file is truncated at nearly 2 GB of size but motion still captures live image (display over web server). No error message is generated or a new file is generated to capture the video after the 2 GB size limit.
Is it possible to configure a rollover mechanism depending on the size of the video and not based on time. Hourly may generate to much videos. Daily does not work as the file size exceeds the limits.
I use a Raspberry Pi as system with a Logitech pro 9000 webcam and an ext4 file system and the latest Rasbian OS version.
No error message displayed or logged. Video is lost.
