SORRY CAM IS CURRENTLY DOWN
This 2nd raspberry Pi is working fine but the camera has failed!
this happened with the power outages over Christmas and I am now waiting for a replacement camera.
Not only will it show a live camera, it will also give a series of frame grabs if there is motion across the camera!
it captured this picture below
The mouse was NOT harmed and released back into the wild (a good distance away) and was no worse for it's temporary capture
This bit below here is so I can remember how I did it! you don't need to read this bit
I have now got motion (webcam) working with Debian Wheezy
latest build (2012-07-15) on a Pi
(after a bit of head scratching!!)
takes only 13% of CPU usage
sudo apt-get install motion
then edited motion's configuration file
sudo nano /etc/motion/motion.conf
change these lines to "off" in that file: (it's quite a way down in the file, default is on)
permissions on the motions config file need to be changed or motion cannot read them! type
sudo chmod 777 /etc/motion/motion.conf
Start up motion program, type
then look at on PC
