Motion detection software for webcams

Here's a quick link for a problem of mine, it comes from Linux forum and I'd like to note this software rocks ! The author as well !

Here's my problem:
I'd like to get started with some sort of motion detection software, i need to save images (still frames) or videos from a common webcam when something changes. I even need to shape the area I need di capture cause in some areas there are noises or non interesting things (car traffic and so on). I need it for a private remote camera control for surveillance. Any hints ? is there someone having experience on it ?

Hope it helps someone else
