have tried changing the config file to this:


but motion returns errors. want to be able to put into a browser and get the stream that would normally show up on my hardrive.

I have also tried the wput on_photo_save, but it tells me that I have to many connections from my machines, and I don't want to have to have a frame rate of 2 per minute.

Motion is motion detecting software, installable in the usual sudo apt-get install way.

drnessie/ tom Your new edit isn't more information, it's a new question altogether. Please ask a separate question for that. – Sathya Jul 26 '11 at 7:25
