Motion - Support Question 2012x 08x 22x 080153

Can I send a RAW video stream (YUV or YUYV)?


Hey guys! Thank you so much for such an awesome piece of software. I have one question... I want to know if I can somehow modify the code (or motion configuration file) so I would be able to send a RAW video stream (in YUV or YUYV format) instead of the MJPEG format that motion uses by default. I am working on a small project where bandwidth is not an issue, and it would be ideal to send a RAW video stream to reduce the CPU usage needed to encode the video into MJPEG (I am using a Raspberry Pi). Thank you very much for your help!

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