Logitech camera setup - Raspberry Pi


Webcam on RaspberryPi

I had a Logitech C310 Webcam lying idle at home so decided to give it a try with the Raspberry Pi.

After hooking any usb device i always have a tendency to run lsusb and lsmod
It worked out of the box, i was able to see /dev/video0
Motion detection was good and captured screenshots with date time stamp.
Steps
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install motion

sudo nano /etc/motion/motion.conf
change these lines to “off” in that file:
control_localhost off
webcam_localhost off

Start the program
sudo motion -n
Check Video Streams
http://raspberry ip address:8081 on the PC
Video Streaming was not usable it was very slow even at 320×240 @ 7~10 fps
