Motion - Support Question 2013x 09x 21x 175156

Cannot view motion streaming images in browser

Question

Hi, I installed Motion 3.2.12 on Raspbian and looks like it's running. I can view the control page //localhost:8080 ok. But I cannot see any image when accessing //localhost:8081. Instead, I'm getting a series of strange letters which look like this: --BoundaryString Content-type: image/jpeg Content-Length: 7697 ?? JFIF ?? ? ? ?C (1#%(:3= 9387@H\N@DWE78PmQW_bgh

I'm really puzzled. Can you kindly help me with what the problem is and how am I able to see streaming images from motion in browser?

Thank you.
Below is the return from http://localhost:8080/0/config/list
