Hi! I had the same problem and, like others in this thread, noticed that the webcam turned off when motion was detected. The motion config file is set to save pictures when motion is detected. Since I didn't want to store photos nor videos, I disabled these options by setting output_pictures off and ffmpeg_output_movies off in the config file. This allowed the camera to stream without a problem. Jarrad's solution to give permissions to the directory would probably work if you wanted to store pics/videos.
