    CB-10369: Added getVideo() feature with thumbnail creation (readded)

    I've implemented the `getVideo` function for cordova-plugin-camera which gives the user
the ability to record a video with default camera app.
    You can create a sample cordova app and copy the www files from `samples/android/www_getVideo`
and run an interactive test of this feature with all the options, as follows:
     *          `quality`: points to `Camera.VideoQuality`,
     *          `sourceType`: points to `Camera.VideoSourceType`,
     *          `encodingType`: points to `Camera.VideoEncodingType`,
     *          `mediaType`: points to `Camera.MediaType`,
     *          `mediaThumbnail`: points to `Camera.MediaThumbnail`,
     *          `mediaDurationLimit`: numeric value, 0 = disabled
     *          `mediaSizeLimit`: numeric value, 0 = disabled  
    ... where:
        /** Return 3GP encoded video */
        GPP: 2,
        /** Return MP4 encoded video */
        MP4: 3,
        /** Return WEBM encoded video */
        WEBM: 4,
        /** Return MKV encoded video */
        MKV: 5
        /** Media thumbnail disabled */
        NONE: 0,
        /** Creates a thumbnail of 512x384 px */
        MINI_KIND: 1,
        /** Creates a thumbnail of 96x96 px */
        MICRO_KIND: 2
        /** Choose video from video library */
        VIDEOLIBRARY : 0,
        /** Take video from camera */
        CAMERA : 1
        /**  Low quality, suitable for MMS messages */
        LOW : 0,
        /** High quality */
        HIGH: 1
    I always thought that this plugin would launch the camera app in recording mode if `sourceType`
set to CAMERA and `mediaType` set to VIDEO, but when I needed this I found that it's not implemented,
so I made it myself.
    I'm just a web dev, not a software developer, but I managed to get it done; this is my
first contribution to a cordova plugin with native code, so there might be things that are
not written well or missing checks. I'm open to suggestions and contributions for this.
    Android only for the moment. If there's someone that can port this to iOS would be much
appreciated, but in the meantime, I'll try my luck with that too.
    Tested with two real devices: Sony Xperia Z3 Compact (5.1.1) and Sony Xperia Sola (unofficial
    Here are two screenshots with the interactive sample:
