Feature Request: Motion Output in the WebCam stream


The option "output_motion" permits to see what is changed into a picture. This function works only to produce MPEG or JPEG files, but does not impact the webcam stream. I would like to have the possibility to see this picture in the WebCam stream.

Background: I'm actually starting to extend XMotion to support the interactive tuning. This consist of a webcam viewer which shows the actual frame, and a set of buttons which permits to adjust the threshold, noise_level... The actual output shows only the normal view with the number of pixel which changes (text_changes option) and the location (locate option). The possibility to switch the view to see this green picture would be usefull to tune Motion.

Follow up

There is a planned feature called setup_mode on my todo list that will help setting up motion during installation and finetune it during operation. I will probably start this with the new 3.2 train coming soon. (See SetupModeDiscussion)

If this will work as the actual WebCam interface it will be fine for me.

This is now implemented as the new setup mode feature. First beta in 3.2.1_snap5.
