    Hello peeps,

    Today I got remote control shutter that has 2 buttons one for iphones other for android, android button captures picture and iphone button outputs volume up click (on our opo it is zoom) so I want to make use of that button, somehow manage it to start recording video.

    Maybe someone knows camera app that can start recording video by pressing volume up button? Or camera app that could be customized to take video when volume up is clicked.

    Or some sort solution that I could control Bluetooth incoming input and change it to capture video output.

    Ps. Don’t ask why I need it :D

    Problem solved, by bug i guess, when I start default camera app in landscape "android button" starts recording video and "iphone button" (volume up) can take picture, but if i open app in vertical position then "android button" works as picture capture button

    Wow.. how did you get it to work at all?
    I have a big pile of these shutters (as my girlfriend imports them from china for her girlfriends in combination with selfie monopod's),
    but unlike all other phones we have here, for the love of god, I can not get it to connect in Bluetooth in the Oneplus.

    (ps, the devices work on 12 difference other brands)
    I was giving up hope till I saw this post

    I had no problem, OPO finds it instantly, only thing when you turn on remote shutter, wait for 10s because if you turn it on and try to connect to it without waiting then opo stays "connecting..." for ever and then you have to disable Bluetooth on phone and connect to it again

    Hmm, mine simply does not see it at all :S ah well.. if that's the only flaw my opo has, I'll live :) wondering if a software update somewhere along the road will help (i'm still on stock)

    Yes, it still same, Today I tested it with 05q update and it works same. When you turn on remote (starts blinking blue light) it takes about 10s to find it and when you connect to it, one plus shows that input keyboard is connected. Worls same in landscape 1 click android button it takes picture, hold iOS button for 2s it stars filming.
    I am sure it has no diference but mine remote is green :)
    Ps. It price was US $2.61+ free shipping and now I see it is a ripoff with current price, you shuld search other dealer, because chinese sells same stuff on ebay even pictures of product are same but prices different

    I just got mine. In landscape it gave video with ios button and panoramic with android. And then it hit me. The volume buttons where set to zoom.... You need a combo of phone buttons set up such as to fit your needs. In my case video is less used with the phone and more with my Polaroid Cube camera underwater but I will crack the combination because I need to know the works!

    Well ages away and the results are as such... it works as OP first reported. Only thing is after taking a video next option for it is panoramic view from which you can't escape. a bit of a hustle but if you know it happens you can quickly prepare for it.
