Do you mean as a regular codec for all movies instead ?

-- AngelCarpintero - 24 Jan 2012

Successfully tested with motion 3.2.12-3 backported from Debian Sid to Debian Squeeze and built against libavcodec52/libavformat52/libavutil49 0.5.6-3 and libtheora0 1.1.1+dfsg.1-3. Works very well, except ffmpeg_variable_bitrate produces very low quality movies for any value between 2-31 (60 seconds of 8fps in 320x240 takes cca 130 KB with variable bitrate in ogg; the same in swf with other settings unchanged takes about 4MB). CPU usage seems to be slightly higher in comparison to swf (tested on AMD Geode LX 800).

AngelCarpintero, This patch implements the change for time lapse only.

-- MichaelLuich - 26 Mar 2012

Sorry MichaelLuich , but maybe you meant regular movies , because time lapse only works with mpeg no matter what codec you setup for ffmpeg_video_codec ,

So please change description of the patch , attached is the diff against trunkREV552.

For me looks good to commit this into SVN & GIT.

Thanks a lot for your contribution.
