Encoding jpgs to theora

I finally got around to setting up the plumbing to save all the motion activated snapshots from my security camera to my server and once a day encode the individual JPGs in to a Theora video.

There isn’t a lot to it, first I activated the FTP server on my Mac and created an account for the security cameras to upload as. Second I pointed the cameras at the FTP server. Third the below script (not much to it either) and a crontab entry to call it daily.
