Motion - Web MVP 8 Codec

Add WebM / VP8 codec support

Description of Patch

Add WebM / VP8 container and codec support for motion-triggered movies. Also modify the concatenation of filename and extension to allow for extensions longer than 4 characters (e.g. '.webm').

Installation of Patch

Download the patch file. If it is packed as a gz or tar.gz unpack it first. Then copy it to the motion source directory and issue the command (assuming the patch file is called filename_of_patch_file.diff)

patch < WebMVP8Codec.diff

Then re-build Motion and test the patch.

Discussion and Comments

Ffmpeg supports the WebM and VP8 container and codec with the libvpx library. WebM is useful for viewing motion-triggered movies as HTML5 video elements.
