Last night I tried to get motion running on my pi for a live stream from a webcam plugged into it. I read through multiple tutorials, and they all said the same things for the most part. The problem is that they all say to change a few things in the webcam section of
motion.conf, but that section just isn't there for me. I tried to add it myself but it gave me an error something like 'unrecognized command' (I'm not near my pi for the moment).
I'm running OSMC on a Pi 2. The conf file contains what appears to be everything else it should, definitely everything else the tutorials called for. I ran both
sudo apt-get update sudo aptget upgrade
and it still doesn't work.
It did tell me that it started the daemon, and I tried to see the stream on the page. Once I was able to get a still shot, but other than that just a 'missing' image.
