Motion - Support Question 2005x 03x 22x 113924

Motion on Single Board Computer


Hi, is it possible to use motion on a SBC W/128mb DiskOnModule? Right now, there is a debian(woody) system using about 4mb of DOM. There is no library installed for motion. All I want is to detect number of people passing through webcam. It is not necessary to see the video or something else....


Motion version: 3.1.19
ffmpeg version:  
Server OS: Debian Woody release

I don't see why not.

Just build from sources and ommit almost everything. Ie. no MySQL, no Postgres, no ffmpeg. And maybe also strip the binary from having debug symbols included.

When running do not save any picture. Just use the onxxxx or execute option that suits your purpose.

Most challenging will be installing camera driver and have your settings so that Motion triggers one event or on onsave per person.
