        I had selected a simpler interface to save space, "Custom"
        instead of "Native" which did not display those buttons you
        refer to. Changing that I probably see what you see, still
        haven't been able to record a video stream from an IP camera or
        a web cam. Googling brings up stuff that is different than what
        I have here, probably due to an evolving application, and has
        not been of much help.

        It's not important enough to warrant a lot of effort, my
        interest was aroused by your earlier comment since I had looked
        into this before. I'll chip away at it when I have nothing
        better to do.
