Motion-Mmal: I want to disable live stream capabilities

Tue Dec 23, 2014 4:39 am

I have a few questions about Motion-MMAL for the Raspberry Pi B+ model, running on Raspbian: Sorry if these are noob questions.

1) I want to disable the live stream capability completely; however, i can only find information on how to keep the live stream local

2) If I do not visit the local address for the live stream, is it still technically uploading data and live streaming?

As per the comments in the supplied config file's 'Live Stream Server' section, you can disable streaming by setting stream_port to zero.

If streaming is enabled but no client (e.g. web browser) is connected, then it doesn't stream - and consequently doesn't use up processing power. If you watch the CPU load before and after connecting to the stream port, you can see the difference.
