BUG: Need to set norm to NTSC in xawtv for threads beyond 0

4 identical cameras (NTSC) connected to a 4 port/4 processor capture card. To get threads 1 through 3 functioning in NTSC, you must first set each individual input to NTSC through xawtv. Not doing so will result in PAL video output for threads 1 through 3.

here are my config files:


auto_brightness off
daemon off

ffmpeg_cap_new on
ffmpeg_deinterlace on
despeckle EedDl
framerate 30
width 320
height 240

hue 180
saturation 100
brightness 200
contrast 100

max_mpeg_time 3600
low_cpu 30

#number of pixels changed before recording
threshold 500

#number of frames after motion to continue recording
post_capture 30

webcam_localhost off
webcam_maxrate 2
webcam_port 8001
webcam_quality 30
output_normal off
input 1
norm 1

control_html_output on
control_port 8000

Follow up

Interesting observation. We have had several reports that people had to use another program before using Motion.
