ftp'ing pictures


Hello I wanted to send jpg pictures taken by Motion to my ftp server:

on_picture_save wput -B %f

This does not work (no pictures appear in the site). What is wrong with this command?

Can I also issue a comand to delete jpg files after they are transmitted to the ftp site? Is there a command to send avi files as well?

Paste in your error messages, config settings, terminal window output etc in this text field.


Motion version: 3.2.12

Can you attach motion log here? If the upload command fails you should see there why. Also, it is possible to upload movie files by firing script "on_movie_end".

After picture or movie uploaded you can safely delete the file but executing "rm %f". If you want to perform multiple actions, like upload and delete, you should probably write a script and let motion to fire that script
