Now master branch git includes the feature described in the first post (storage tab in monitor configuration), so I post here.

Click on event number to watch its video, endlessly repeats video (loop). Click on pause detect it (shortly icon change) but do not stop looping.
Can not create video from event (any format):

Also have suggestions:
All modern IP cameras have at least 2 streams. So, to optimize server load, it would be nice, to be possible to:
modect low resolution (PAL, VGA..) on jpeg/h264 stream, as is curently on ZM.
nodect high resolution stream linked to modect, recording in passthrough mode (record original stream from camera, regardless of format - jpeg, h264, h265 etc.)
This way, no video transformation is needed or h264 --> jpeg on low stream, that would significantly reduce system load.
As all computers this days use some kind of GPUs with hardware video acceleration, how to exploit it, as ffmpeg is capable of that?
