Motion - Support Question 2009x 01x 15x 203927

V4L2_PIX_FMT_PAC207 ( PAC207 ) not supported

Question

Hi, I have two cameras (one speedlink and another one), both seem to use the same driver. I can get images using 'webcam', so I guess they are functional. I'm running Ubuntu, kernel 2.6.27-9. The attached text shows my problem, but there may be something I miss. There seems to be no "compatible" palette format, is there any solution for this? Thanks a lot, I really much like what this program might do, so I want to give it a try.

Follow Up

It's being developed to give support to new palettes in kernel 2.6.27 and above ...

Probably you can use [http://people.atrpms.net/~hdegoede/ libv4l] meanwhile to convert from V4L2 _PIX_FMT_PAC207 to V4L2 _PIX_FMT_YUV420

Take a look :
