Motion - Netcam Proxy Server Patch

Implementation of optional Proxy Server for Network Cameras


It is rumoured that, when the netcam code was using Curl, it was possible to specify a proxy server. More recent versions lost this capability. This patch is to re-implement this facility within the recently-introduced re-written netcam.c code.

Description of Patch

A new configuration parameter, netcam_proxy, is introduced. When it is present within motion.conf (or any of the thread configurations) the netcam code will route all communication with the network camera through the Proxy Server specified.

Installation of Patch

  • Already included in motion-3.2.2_snap10
