Options missing from web interface
I originally installed Motion without ffmpeg, and it was doing a bang-up job. I decided to add movie capability, so I installed ffmpeg (and zlib1g-dev, wouldn't configure without it). I then ran make clean, ./configure --enable-shared, make, and make install. I added the following configuration parms to /usr/local/etc/motion.conf: ffmpeg_cap_new on
Then I stopped and restarted motion. Everything seems to work exactly as before, and therein lies the problem. The web interface doesn't show any of the ffmpeg options in the config list, and movies are not being created. What did I forget to do?
| Motion version:
| ffmpeg version:
|| ffmpeg, mysql, postgresql
| Server OS:

I figured it out. Well, at least I fixed it. I think it was being caused by a user/group ownership issue. I rebuilt everything again, and then changed the ownership of the generated files to the motion user. It seems to be working now, anyway!
Ok you answered yourselft.
