I have an a560 and I still can't use the optical zoom while recording videos...

I have downloaded the source from here / - chdk - Trac and compiled it myself.
It seems to work, but when I record a video the optical zoom is still locked

Am I doing something wrong?
Should it work when I'm not in the ALT mode?

Before I found this I used a script to make the optical zoom working, but the camera didn't refocused, will it refocus when I make this working somehow?
When I'm not recording the camera refocuses if I use zoom...

You must turn on "enable optical zoom" in "video parameters" menu, that's all.

I don't have that position in the menu...

I have only these:
Extra shooting parameters
RAW param..
OSD...
Hostogram
Zebra
Visual
Miscellaneous stuff
Debug
Reset options to default...

I looked everywhere, and the only things that video-related that I found was Video mode, bitrate and quality in Extra shooting params.

Maybe I downloaded a wrong package or something... I'm a newbie in these matters...

Maybe wrong (too old) sources. Latest sources.
