    Hi Igor - 

    Absolutely. Check out the Direct Download section of the Nx Server API.

    Thank you very much! What would you recommend as the method to get the metadata of all the video files that is available before the download API is invoked to actually download the records? We need to be able to enumerate what is available before requesting actual files in bulk. Thanks!

    Igor - 

    If I understand your question correctly you'd like to make an API query to find video based on specific associated attributes (e.g. motion, Bookmark, camera name, etc), and then initiate a Direct Download API call to download video from the archive to a 3rd party storage location. Is that correct?

    Yes, that is correct. I will have to periodically refresh the DB and upload the new indexes to our DB and then continue to request the files for the archival.

    If you want all recorded video index, then use ec2/recordedTimePeriods method

    If you want just bookmarks - use /ec2/bookmarks
