Hi Luca. Just a head's up, I'm a newbie so forgive me if this is not helpful.

Can I just double check with you about your "width" and "height" settings? They seem kind of non standard.

width 536

height 402

I have the "IP webcam" app installed on my android and I see only the following available settings in "Photo resolution"

3264x2448 , 3264x1968 , 2048x1536 , 2048x1232 , 1280x960 , 800x480 , 640x480

Are you sure that 536x402 is the resolution that the IP Webcam is delivering? I think that you might run into trouble if this setting doesn't match the width and height settings of the generated jpeg image from your webcam.

Other than that would you be willing to try enabling more aggressive logs and then sending the generated logs while the problem occurs in to the thread? Just add the following to the motion config file

log_level 9

Thanks very much Luca! Best of luck!
