Motion - Motion Release 3x 1x 17snap 2

Motion Snapshot Release 3.1.17_snap2

Release Notes

NOTE: Official 3.1.17 is now released

3.1.17 snap2 Bugfix release
  • Implemented a new lightswitch feature. 'lightswitch detected' is based on the percentage of pixels set by the lightswitch option (which is now an integer instead of a boolean). When lightswitch is detected motion skips 5 frames to allow camera to settle.
  • Fixed a bug in the autobrightness function.
  • Fixed a bug in netcam_start() - wrong imgs.size calculation

Known Problems

  • The make updateguide fetches a guide and it can be read but it contains some session ID codes that I have not found out how to avoid.
  • The pwc-ioctl.h is for pwc version 9.0.1 and 10.0.4. If you still use the pwc 8 series then you need to use the headerfile pwc-ioctl.h-pwc8.0 (copy the pwc-ioctl.h-pwc8.0 over pwc-ioctl.h). This is relevant for USB cameras using Philips chips.

Bug Reports

I found two (minor) bugs/flaws:

  • You left two junk files in the archive: motion.c.orig and .new.combine.
  • You swapped width and height parameters for vid_autobright in video.c, but not in video.h, video_freebsd.c and video_freebsd.h.
