I am really interested in this too, but have not been able to do anything as you suggested (I'm a beginner in this stuff).

I need his feature too, I think is really useful. I check: But I'm beginner too, so I don't know how apply the patch and compile my own version,

At the moment I'm using Ubuntu 10.04.2 LTS with motion Version 3.2.11 and the password webcam option is not available.

Thank you in advance.
