Problems starting motion

Question

I installed motion motion_3.2.8-0.ubuntu.feisty_i386.deb and tried to start it then, it says (among other things) ioctl(VIDIOCGMBUF) - Error device does not support memory map and terminates. My card is working with VLC media player, using channel 2 in pvr settings. what am I missing?

Take a look to this topic :

Follow-up

The support request http://www.lavrsen.dk/twiki/bin/view/Motion/MotionWinTVPVRCardSupport provides patches for 3.2.3 and 3.2.4 versions of motion. These are not valid for 3.2.8 version. Do you know if there is an equivalent patch available for the latest motion (3.2.8)?

-- JasjeetSingh - 08 Aug 2007

I've made a patch agains svn trunk , but not sure how it will work .

Thanks for your quick response. I have applied the new patch on 3.2.8 source and recompiled motion. However I still get the same error:

I think the patch got applied correctly, but can you please still reconfirm. Here is the terminal output while applying the patch. BTW, I had to manually enter each file name to patch (as shown in the terminal output below):

Thanks, Jasjeet


Here it's the whole process :

mkdir motion-svn

cd motion-svn

svn co -r202 http://www.lavrsen.dk/svn/motion/trunk .

wget 'http://www.lavrsen.dk/twiki/bin/viewfile/Motion/MotionWinTVPVRCardSupport?rev=1;filename=wintv-motion-svn-202.patch' -O wintv-motion-svn-202.patch

patch <wintv-motion-svn-202.patch

./configure ; make

I did the above steps, patch applied correctly but "make" fails with the following error:

The problem seems to be the version of ffmpeg you are using , because i cannot reproduce your problem with ffmpeg in Ubuntu either debian.

So please use a motion certified ffmpeg version.

-- AngelCarpintero - 12 Aug 2007


I was getting problems while installing 0.4.8 version of ffmpeg as it required an older version of gcc, so I tried to understand why this compile error was coming.

------------------------------------
video_common.c: In function #ffmpeg_next#:
video_common.c:717: error: duplicate case value
video_common.c:702: error: previously used here
------------------------------------
Lines 717 and 702 of video_common (after applying the patch) are:
------------------------------------
line 702: case AVERROR_UNKNOWN:
line 717: case AVERROR_INVALIDDATA:
------------------------------------
In avcodec.h found in latest version of ffmpeg, AVERROR_UNKNOWN and AVERROR_INVALIDDATA have same value. As a result gcc complains for duplicate case statement. So I commented out the case statement at line 717 in video_common.c (motion_3.2.9 + patch) and motion compiles and installs without error.

However, still I get the same error if I run motion with PVR-150 as video source. That is
------------------------------------
[1] Supported palettes:
[1] 0: HM12 (HM12 (YUV 4:1:1))
[1] 1: MPEG (MPEG)
[1] Unable to find a compatible palette format.
[1] ioctl(VIDIOCGMBUF) - Error device does not support memory map
[1] V4L capturing using read is deprecated!
[1] Motion only supports mmap.
[1] Capture error calling vid_start
[1] Thread finishing...

I had missed declaring the "ffmpeg_device on" in the motion.conf. Also declared "discard_frames 2". Both are requried by the patch as indicated in

http://www.lavrsen.dk/twiki/bin/view/Motion/MotionWinTVPVRCardSupport

After this the error goes away and motion works fine. Thanks for your help.
