Low Camera Resolution Problem
Motion stuck in the 352x288 resolution. Even if I set higher resolutions, it starts with this one.
# Image width (pixels). Valid range: Camera dependent, default: 352
# Image height (pixels). Valid range: Camera dependent, default: 288
after starting motion:
 Selected palette YU12
 index_format 8 Test palette YU12 (640x480)
 Adjusting resolution from 640x480 to 352x288.
 Using palette YU12 (352x288) bytesperlines 352 sizeimage 152064 colorspace 00000008
Note: I had to start motion using "LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l2convert.so motion" because of the palette issues with my kernel version.

Vitor , you forgot to write what camera / kernel module and version ( or svn revision ) but i guess it's uvcvideo or one based on it. This driver reduces the image size based on USB bandwidth , so you can try to use a palette forma like JPG or use a real USB 2.0 host. Usually your problem is because camera is attached to a USB 1.1 or 1.0 host.
But also could be a problem of libv4l.
