Motion - Support Question 2008x 02x 11x 160008

5 FPS but only one change per second


Hi, im very new to motion ... and my english is worst ... i know frown, sad smile

I have a Intellinet Highspeed Dome Cam ... not cheap wink The cam is configured to capture 5 frames per second.

And that is it, what i told motion. Now i get a movie ... 5 frames per seconde.

I can see 5 frames with "text_right %q" - option. But all 5 frames looks equal.

There are very heavy motions but all 5 frame are the same for that second. It looks like 1 frame per second. I can see the %q counts up but no changes in the picture.

There are at least 2 clients connected to the cam.

Can anybody help me?

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