Motion - Config Option Webcam Quality

webcam_quality

  • Type: Integer
  • Range / Valid values: 1 - 100
  • Default: 50
  • Group: Obsolete

Quality setting in percent for the mjpeg picture frames transferred over the webcam connection. Keep it low to restrict needed bandwidth.

This option has been replaced by stream_quality

The mjpeg stream consists of a header followed by jpeg frames separated by content-length and boundary string. The quality level defines the size of the individual jpeg pictures in the mjpeg stream. If you set it too high you need quite a high bandwidth to view the stream.
