You may find the motion package interesting. In addition to saving
images based on motion detection, it can also save snapshots at
regular intervals, and provide a live feed to a browser.
It doesn't require any apache integration to provide the live feed.
It has a much smaller resource footprint than gstreamer, last time I
checked. One process does all.
It even has a web browser control interface.
Works on XO-1.5, XO-1.75, and XO-4. On XO-1.75 it consumes about 13%
CPU at two frames per second. It doesn't do the expensive JPG
compression unless the image is to be recorded or sent over the net.
I've got several working on various tasks. My favourite motion.conf
file looks like this:
