using Olympus OI Share app with E-P5

Hello everyone.

I have successfully used the Olympus Image Share app on my android phone to "control" my Pen E-P5. Recently however I wanted to use the facility to capture some video remotely. I do not seem to be able to do this despite the app saying you can. I go to the top right of the screen in "Remote Control Live View" and that brings up a menu with the usual options of IAuto, P, A, S, M and Art, but there is no option to go to video. I have updated the firmware in the camera and uninstalled and reinstalled the app to make sure I have the latest versions. Am I doing something wrong or is this not possible with this particular camera?
Thank you in anticipation of your responses.

Re: using Olympus OI Share app with E-P5

I've tried using OIS on my E-P5, but quickly gave up. OIS is probably the 'clunkiest' app known to mankind!
