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

      Description

      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
      http://docs.phonegap.com/en/1.4.1/phonegap_camera_camera.md.html#cameraOptions_options
      is wrong. 'MediaType' should be 'mediaType'

      Test case below

      <!DOCTYPE html>
      <html>
        <head>
          <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 src="'+mediaFiles[0].fullPath+'"></video>';
          }
          
          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);
          }
          </script>
          </head>
          <body>
              <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>
          </body>
      </html>
