(Replace this text by a short headline for your project)


What it does:

Reduces CPU and network utilization by serving images to Motion that are pre-qualified as motion by a netcam that supports motion detection.

Detailed Description

It's currently a perl script supporting multiple cameras and image size filtering (drops bad images that are too small).

1) configured netcam FTPs motion frames to a local repository (FTP Server)

2) MotionProxy watches directories for camera's frames and keeps a list of them.

3) When motion requests a frame from the proxy, next image from local repo is served.

4) Served frame is deleted.
