Motion is a command line based tool. It has no graphical user interface. Everything is setup either via the command line or via configuration files.
The output from motion can be: - jpg files - ppm format files - mpeg video sequences
Also, motion has its own minimalistic web server. Thus, you can access the webcam output from motion via a browser.
Motion up to version 3.1.8 was created and maintained by Jeroen Vreeken. Versions 3.1.9-3.1.12 was maintained by Kenneth Lavrsen (http://www.lavrsen.dk/) and Folkert van Heusden (http://www.vanheusden.com/). From 3.1.12 Motion is project managed by Kenneth Lavrsen and maintained by a large number of people. See the file CREDITS for the list of people having made contributions to the Motion code. more»
