I get this:
*** STARTED ***
*** FINISHED ***
uBasic: 1 Unk stmt

Anyone have any tips? Or is there a script out there I have overlooked? Or better yet can someone make edits to the BSA script above to work with the S95?
The scripts are fine the way they are. The problem is likely the way that you are copying them from the wiki to your camera.  You're using some sort of editor that copies them as something other than plain text. (Sorry for the delayed response ..)

You can use it without modification on your sx230. 

Here's the wiki page with the latest versions :

I have tried all three continuous video scripts in my ELPH 300 HS. All of them half-work, but none of them actually start the video recording with the second file is created. "Extended Video" came closest, but I got a "null value" error for the "get video button" command and it stops the script.

Any help appreciated. This is a back-up cam and I need it to run on its own.

Well,  I'll need more information than that.  "Half-work" tells me nothing about what works or breaks.  A very detailed list of what you did and what you saw is important here. Lots of people have used those scripts sucessfully so we need to understand how you are using them.

Thanks.

Turn on camera using Playback mode.
Menu to Firm Upgrade, OK
CHDK boots up with screen, hit vid button for "ALT" menu
Navigate through Scripting Parameters to Load Script
Load "Extended Video" Script
back
Tap "Shutter"

(and this appears...)

[DISP] On/Off BAcklight
[MENU] End
:15 attempt to call global 'get_video_button' (a nil value)
PRESS SHUTTER TO CLOSE

get_video_button is only available in CHDK 1.1, you can find it here: http://mighty-hoernsche.de/trunk/

Actually,  while get_video_button() as a Lua function is only in the 1.1 dev trunk,  get_video_button as a uBASIC function has been available since August 30, 2008 and is thus in the stable and dev trunks.

Not that that helps much when you are using a Lua script.

We can also add an error message.

Code: [Select]
if type(get_video_button) ~= "function" then
    error("Use a recent modular CHDK version")
end

I installed the CHDK 1.1 and it still does the same thing with the Extended Video script.
