Triggering video mode

So, I've got a CHDK script successfully zooming in and out and taking a picture remotely with an A640. Now the boss asks if I can do the same with video.

I tried setting the mode to video and running a script that starts and stops the video, using 'shoot' and 'click shoot_full' Neither seem to work. It appears to START shooting, but then freezes up before the record icon is shown.

Anyone have any ideas?

Cheers,
Sam.

I've had success with scripting in video mode by starting with

Code: [Select]
press "shoot_full"
sleep 300
release "shoot_full"

and then later stopping with

Code: [Select]
click "shoot_full"
