Motion - Support Question 2005x 05x 10x 075920

Support fo linksys wvc54g , or anyone intrested.


I have resently aquired one of these cammera's but find the firmware not up to par, it will only record for 5 seconds on motion detect so I am looking into getting motion set up as the back end.

The cammera streams what I beleve to be mpeg but the firmware requires (microsoft,blah) activex installed on the viewers p.c.

I can view short video's that have been emailed to me from the cam using mplayer, But cannot view the stream with Firefox etc.

If anyone out there has a workaround or could possably help me out, please post.




Motion version: 3.1.19

Libraries: curl, xmlrpc, ffmpeg, mysql, postgresql

Motion only supports jpeg or mjpeg net cameras.

So you will either need to make the camera do this and if this is not possible some conversion proxy is needed.

See the entry at NetcamMjpegStreamDumps about your camera. There is hope. The camera can do mjpeg.
