Motion - Support Question 2015x 09x 24x 193945

image is smaller than specified

Question

Hi, first, thanks so much for providing this really useful piece of software! Here my question:

Because of using an ethernet expander to bride about 20 m between my USB webcam and the PC I have a low bandwidth. This apparently leads to the images being smaller than specified in motion.conf and delivered by the webcam. I would be happy with a stream of just 1 picture / second or even less if this allowed larger images to be transmitted. In fact, when connecting the webcam directly - without the extender - I can stream much larger images. Is there a way of getting larger images by playing with the parameters? Thanks a lot for hints, best, Dieter
