Motion - Motion Release 3x 1x 18snap 3

Motion Snapshot Release 3.1.18_snap3

Release Notes

3.1.18 snap3 Development Release - not recommended for normal use

Released as snapshot for developers to merge other patches.

Changes since 3.1.17



  • Implemented phase 2 of the rotate patch
  • Added brightness patch options to motion-dist.conf

Next Steps

  • Next step is implementing the Smart Mask patch and testing further for stability.
    I have run the Smart Mask patch file from 26th of October and it patches and runs as expected. There may be some conf->height and conf->width we need to look out for. Smart mask looks like a promissing new feature.
  • Then follows the NetcamDecompressInMemory patch
  • Address open bugs

Pending patches are
  • FfmpegPatch049 needs to be further developed to handle all framerates with all 3 types of encoding
  • StreamingNetcamWithoutCurl still too unstable to enter the mainline code without more development on it. The feature itself is high priority.
  • LosslessEncoding is a nice to have feature with lower priority. If it works it is in. If not it is out until someone makes it work.

Known Problems

  • Motion Guide and man pages not yet updated - will wait until more patches are applied.

  • 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.
