BUG: Wireless IP Camera's Not Working

I am not able to get motion to stream my network cameras.

They are all wireless and I have already pre-configured each one.

I have the Foscam FI8910W and I have tried to use:

netcam_url netcam_userpass admin:mypass



But neither seem to work in my case. I keep getting this error:

[1] Retrying until successful connection with camera [1] Removed netcam Keep-Alive flagdue to apparent closed HTTP connection. [1] libjpeg decompression failure on first frame - giving up!

I am able to goto where it will prompt for the user and pass then it will show a live stream, but I need motion to run all of my devices.

Paste in your error messages, config settings, terminal window output etc in this text field.


Motion version: 3.2.12
ffmpeg version:  
Shared libraries: ffmpeg, mysql, postgresql
Server OS: Debian 7.6

Follow up

10/26/2014 - Today I have realized it was more my ignorance of the program then anything else. I found a few new articles which clearly explained what to do. My main issue was that I was trying to setup the cameras all within the same file. I now know you need to use the thread'x'.conf files within the main directory.

Fix record

As stated in the follow up, it was more of my issue than anything else.

The following link is what fixed my misunderstanding for multiple instances:
