Feature Request: time lapse video if motion is detected.
It would be nice is there is future which captures a video if motion is detected.
In most commercial CCTV Recorders you have only 1 video file per camera.
For example you specify for camera1 to use 10 gb of hdd space. It captures maybe 5 frames per second if motion is detected and if no motion 0 frames.
After the 10 gb of space are full it starts to overwrite the file from the beginning…
I hope you understand what I mean.
I tried a lot of commercial cctv systems at work and this is one feature I’m missing in MOTION.

motion already supports the feature to generate a video file everytime motion is detected (if that is what you were looking for)
Although it does not have the ability place multiple recorded detected "events
" into a single file (this is limitation of the codec).
If you just want to view all the events together (or a subset) if you can simply create a playlist file then play the "playlist" ( this is what I do ).
otherwise, if you really
want to all events for a particular camera ( or day )
in one big single file, you can merge them yourself using a application like ffmpeg
