I have my camera streaming through VLC using a separate (slower) computer because my iMac is too far from the window. I was curious if there was software that could take streaming video and watch it for motion (take shots/etc). The software can be win/lin/mac, just as long as it can keep an eye on the people wrecking my christmas lights outside!

Take a look at zoneminder. Its a more compex solution, but has motion detection.

VLC has a motion detect video filter. Its under Preferences->All->Video->Filters
