Command line options for reconfiguring motion
The decision to remove command line options starting with motion 3.2.1 as described in <http://www.lavrsen.dk/foswiki/bin/view/Motion/CommandLineOptions> seems to make adding some tweaks to motion a whole lot cumbersome.
I am trying to change the framerate based on whether or not nmap can locate my phone on the LAN (which is done through cron periodically). It seems like the only way I can do this now (I'm using 3.2.12) is to have two different configuration files (with the only difference being the framerate), and restart motion with the appropriate file. If I were to further add tweaks, looks like I will be required to add different configuration files for each optimization. And each restart would reset the event numbers--making, e.g., any analytics across different days cumbersome. Instead, having the possibility of reconfiguring options through the command line will be a lot easier. Can this be reconsidered in an upcoming release? If the answer to this is a firm "no", I would appreciate if the reason for the same is elaborated on.
Meanwhile, is there something simpler than having multiple configuration files that I can use?
