Pi Record Web Cam to USB

Sun Jan 20, 2013 11:37 am

I am trying to get my pi to be able to automatically record to a USB device when turned on.

I have tried Motion without success.

Any help would be appreciated, the web cam is a Logitech C920 HD.

Even if I haven't got the webcam you mention, I found a way to get it working with motion. Take a look at these 2 posts on the forum:

I made a post about it too on my RPi-powered blog, but it is in spanish:

Hope it helps.
