It connects to the cameras, grabs their images (presented as JPG files), stores a time range of them, and determines if there was a 'change'.  If so, it goes back a few images, and begins a 'movie' of the images leading up to the event, and through the event itself.   When viewing these events, you have the option to save them as AVI, MPG, MOV, WMV, SFW.  Those video files are them available to download.

the security camera I'm using for fun at home streams everything as TS 
(mpeg4 transport stream) at a configurable 10-30fps. it only saves 
segments with motion in them, including user configurable seconds 
before/after any motion event.

doing that with JPG's would be brutal.
