I have a webcam running with Motion.
It's all working fine, however, after a while it stops working.
This appears to be because it is filling up the
/tmp/motion directory with jpegs. (Clearing out this directory and then restarting motion always brings it back up.)
I've set up a cron job to to delete old jpegs, but that feels like tackling the symptom and not the source of the problem, so I was wondering if there is a setting for it built into Motion.
Is there a way to prevent Motion from using up more than a set amount of disk space for this purpose?
