Motion - Config Option Webcam Port


  • Type: Integer
  • Range / Valid values: 0 - 65535
  • Default: 0 (disabled)
  • Group: Obsolete

TCP port on which motion will listen for incoming connects with its webcam server.

This option has been replaced by the stream_port option

Note that each camera thread must have its own unique port number and it must also be different from the control_port number.

A good value to select is 8081 for camera 1, 8082 for camera 2, 8083 for camera 3 etc etc.
