    Default Motion Detector Software

    Hi all,

    I'm looking for a program that can take input from a webcam and take a picture (or video) when it detects motion. Looks like the program "motion" would have been perfect, but there are no packages for it for 12.1, and it won't compile. Does anyone have any suggestions? Being able to run it from the command line would be a huge plus.

    Thanks!
