BUG: ffmpeg writes FLV files even when FFV1 is selected.

motion has an ffmpeg output option to produce FF lossless video, however the actual create output differs.

In motion.conf I have selected: "ffmpeg_video_codec ffv1"

According to the documentation this should produce a file using the FFV1 lossless codec.

However in actual practice it creates an .avi containing a video stream using the FFLV (ie. Flash Video) codec.

The relevant bits of my motion.conf are:

ffmpeg_cap_new on
ffmpeg_cap_motion off
ffmpeg_timelapse 0
ffmpeg_bps 500000
ffmpeg_variable_bitrate 2
ffmpeg_video_codec ffv1

Motion version: 3.2.11-2ubuntu0.1


Motion version:
ffmpeg version: SVN-r19352-4:0.5+svn20090706-2ubuntu2
Shared libraries: ffmpeg, postgresql, libavcodec-extra-52, libavformat-extra-52, libavutil-extra-49, libjpeg62
Server OS: Ubuntu Server 9.10
