Feature Request: Allow different framerates for motion detection, video capturing & webcam streaming

Description

Event videos & webcam streams should be able to be captured/shown at higher frame rates than the actual motion detecting, which is very resource intensive.

Right now you can set a separate frame rate limit for motion detecting & webcam streams, but the 'webcam stream' limit can't be greater than the 'motion detecting' frame rate.

Hi, I've found this is possible in the current version. Just make two threads that point to the same camera and set them up with different parameters! My example below

############# thread1.conf
#This camera captures the video at a high frame rate, and makes a timelapse
ffmpeg_timelapse 120
netcam_userpass admin:XXXX
netcam_url http://192.168.1.239:81/videostream.cgi
netcam_http keep_alive
output_normal best
webcam_maxrate 30
framerate 30

############# thread2.conf
#This thread captures a low frame-rate image stream
netcam_userpass admin:XXXX
netcam_url http://192.168.1.239:81/videostream.cgi
netcam_http keep_alive
output_normal on
ffmpeg_timelapse 0
ffmpeg_cap_new off
webcam_maxrate 1
framerate 1
