Motion start errors

Question

Hello,

I installed the Motion package on my RPi (v2, with Debian) with a RPi camera using the instructions given at http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/665518/Raspberry-Pi-as-low-cost. When I run Motion, the camera light does not come on and I get bunch of errors. (See the full listing below).

I am not sure what to do? My RPi Camera works, because I can use camera functions (rapistill and rapivid) without any problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Answer

edit motion.conf file (/usr/local/etc/motion.conf) and check settings. See named of variables, this may be changed it latest versions motion: webcam_maxrate = stream_maxrate webcam_port=stream_port...

Yes, you are using old config with newever motion. Param names have been changed, so you need to update your config
