I recently purchased a Logitech 750e IP camera. I am trying to use it to create a time lapse video of our backyard landscaping project. The included software doesn't do what I need so I am trying to use a Linux tool called Motion (http://www.lavrsen.dk/foswiki/bin/view/Motion/WebH
Anyway, I got Motion set up, but I am unable to communicate with the camera itself. I can ping its IP address, but when I start up Motion, it says that the camera is not responding.
Has anyone uses the Motion software before? Are their any special ports that I need to connect to? Is this Logitech camera only able to work with the included software?
Thanks in advance,

Based on this, it appears motion only works with MJPEG streams--the alert cameras don't serve out this type of stream. They use RTSP, and H264/AAC, which provides significantly better quality (and audio!), but a lot of software out there only works with MJPEG because it's easier to digest.
You might ask someone on the motion project if they have some sort of RTSP plugin.
