I have interfaced a web cam with rasberry pi and stream live video using motion daemon. I want the frame rate to increase and the video to be crisp. Is there any possible solution?

  • Are you using any of the motion-detecting-features of motion ? – ExploWare Mar 21 '14 at 9:21
  • What is the framerate you have right now? And what do you want? – ExploWare Mar 21 '14 at 9:21
  • Whats not crisp on your current images? – ExploWare Mar 21 '14 at 9:22
  • Where are you streaming to? diskrecorder? website? vlc? locally or worldwideweb? – ExploWare Mar 21 '14 at 9:23
  • Please be more clear in your question – ExploWare Mar 21 '14 at 9:23

This tutorial has served me well in the past: http://wolfpaulus.com/jounal/embedded/raspberrypi_webcam

It uses mjpegstreamer instead of motion. It should fit your needs way better than motion
