I am trying to record my motion videos inside the directory
/media/pi/camera. This directory has the following permissions:
drwxrwxr-x 2 motion motion 4096 Aug 9 20:04 camera
I set the same permissions as my previous directory for motion videos had (
target_dir /media/pi/camera (I am literally copying and pasting here).
Finally, I run
sudo service motion start like before, and I am keep getting the following error:
 [ERR] [ENC] [Aug 09 20:38:56] ffmpeg_open: url_fopen - error opening file /media/pi/camera/01-20170809203856.avi ... check access rights to target directory:  [ERR] [EVT] [Aug 09 20:38:56] event_ffmpeg_newfile: ffopen_open error creating (new) file [/media/pi/camera/01-20170809203856.avi]:
I also tried to run
sudo /etc/init.d/motion start but it did not help.
However, if I run
sudo motion then it works (it records a few seconds and saves a video normally inside
My best guess was that
sudo service motion start starts
motion as another user. But even then, I gave
777 permissions to the folder and it still doesn't want to save videos there.
motion Version 3.2.12+git20140228.
Has anybody got any clue what I am doing wrong, or is that a problem with motion?
