UNSOLVED weird problem with mm and motion(noob inside)
i changed the motion ‘Stream_port’ to 8181 but its still coming out on mm
edit: but motion’s webcontrol port was at 8080 so i changed it and now its ok .Thnx for the idea mate .
I am just chiming in to confirm that I had the same issue and to provide a clear resolution for future reference.
The problem was that Motion was creating a webcontrol element on the same port as Magic Mirror. This resulted in a black screen (the motion HTML file) showing the camera top of my monitor display instead of Magic Mirror.
To fix this, edit /etc/motion/motion.conf and change the 8080 port entry to something else, like 8181.
@phario or 0 to disable that function in motion
