Motion - Support Question 2006x 08x 23x 201148

http://localhost:8087/1/action/makemovie is not working

Question

Motion & http interface is perfectly working (including snapshot, modifying thread configuration,....) except makemovie. When a motion is detected an msmpgeg4 movie is done, correctly. Timelapse movies are also activated (and working). I can't understand why action/makemovie doesne't work either on thread0 either on thread 1(to 3). The answered return is OK, but the movie is nowhere.

My configuration : 3 cameras (thread 0 to 3)

Answer

Makemovie action will create an mpeg file of the current event. So if there's no pending event , it won't have any effect.
