Motion doesn't resolve .local netcam_url

Question

Hi,

I'm trying to set Motion to use .local domains, but Motion doesn't resolve the address. It works only using the IP address.

the mjpeg stream address is http://DCS-930LB1_02E392.local/video.cgi

I can ping the .local address, i can curl the local address, i can resolve the local address, the OS can connect to the .local address, but Motion refuses to resolve and connect to the .local address.
$ ping DCS-930LB1_02E392.local

$ avahi-resolve-host-name  DCS-930LB1_02E392.local

$ curl -u admin:mypassword http://DCS-930LB1_02E392.local/video.cgi
