captureVideo() on iOS doesnt seem to save to the device's photoalbum like captureImage() does

                 Key: CB-248
             Project: Apache Callback
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: iOS
    Affects Versions: 1.4.0
         Environment: tested on iOS only
            Reporter: Filipe Cruz
            Assignee: Shazron Abdullah

calling navigator.device.capture.captureImage() the local path to a temporary location is
retrieved and the image is saved to the device's photoalbum.
calling navigator.device.capture.captureVideo() only the local path to a temporary location
is retrieved, the video is not saved to the device's photoalbum.

I also tested camera.getPicture() but the capturing functionality of that funciton only works
for images. So there is no working solution to capture video to device photoalbum using callback-phonegap.

Also, documentation of
is wrong. 'MediaType' should be 'mediaType'

Test case below

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <title>Capture Video</title>
    <script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8" src="phonegap.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">
    function captureVideoSuccess(mediaFiles) {
        document.getElementById('videocontent').innerHTML = mediaFiles[0].fullPath;
        document.getElementById('videocontent2').innerHTML = '<video controls=true><source
    function captureImageSuccess(mediaFiles) {
        document.getElementById('imagecontent').innerHTML = mediaFiles[0].fullPath;
        document.getElementById('imagecontent2').innerHTML = '<img src="'+mediaFiles[0].fullPath+'">';

    function captureError(error) {
        var msg = 'An error occurred during capture: ' + error.code;
        navigator.notification.alert(msg, null, 'Uh oh!');

    function captureVideo() {
        navigator.device.capture.captureVideo(captureVideoSuccess, captureError);

    function captureImage() {
        navigator.device.capture.captureImage(captureImageSuccess, captureError);
        <button onclick="captureVideo();">Capture Video</button> <br><br>
        <button onclick="captureImage();">Capture Image</button> <br><br>

        <div id="videocontent">void</div>
        <div id="videocontent2">void</div>

        <div id="imagecontent">void</div>
        <div id="imagecontent2">void</div>
