V4L capture program supporting motion detection

Motion is a program that monitors the video signal from one or more cameras and is able to detect if a significant part of the picture has changed. Or in other words, it can detect motion.

Motion is a command line based tool. It has no graphical user interface. Everything is setup either via the command line or via configuration files.

The output from motion can be:

   - jpg files
   - ppm format files
   - mpeg video sequences

Also, motion has its own minimalistic web server. Thus, you can access the webcam output from motion via a browser.
