Hi, does anyone know if possible to increase the length of the video captured when motion is detected ?

I came here to find the answer to this as well. Did you ever find a solution?

A setting to record a min video length if an event is triggered would be ideal.

I too am looking for the answer to this question. I've read the help, FAQ, and other forum discussions. Nothing so far.

Can anyone please answer this? 5-6 seconds of video is not very flexible. Is there a setting somewhere that it can be changed, or will a new release offer this feature?

Hello. Is there an option for max length video? For example, I want to record 5 sec video with pause min 10 sec between motion detection.

I really need this feature. I need more like a 20-second default rather than the 6-7 second default I'm seeing now. Making this time period adjustable would be a very welcomed new feature. Please and thank you.

It would be nice to have begin and end padding time settings in Yawcam. Just guessing, but it appears that Yawcam does automatically save 2 seconds of video before the motion filter is activated, and 2 seconds of video after the motion filter is not seeing any changes?

I just reviewed a motion detection video. It missed small amounts of clearly visible motion which I saw in real time, starting a good 3 to 4 seconds before the motion detection activated. I would prefer adjustment settings, and default settings which record 10 seconds prior and after the motion detection filter activated and deactivates, since I have plenty of hard drive space to burn.

The setting of the recording length is imho the only missing feature of this beautiful app. I've started a Poll(viewtopic.php?f=4&t=5046) some time ago only for this feature. :)

I am using it for more than a year now with a Logitech USB cam and it works very stable(at least when I set the Webcam to a lower resolution because Yawcam crashes from time to time when the Webcam is set in Full HD Mode).
