Hi oleung,
Not sure what you mean by the video cam cannot turn off after a video capture.
It works for me if I :
1. Click the button to "Take Photo"
2. Click on Video icon in the capture window and wait for the 3 second countdown (red semi circle appears)
3. Record the video
4. Click on Video icon to stop the recording (red semi circle disappears)
5. Click on the "Return to FM" button at top of capture window
6. View/play video in FileMaker that has loaded into the Image container field

...awesome!

This could be just UI issue. We are planning to re-design this dialog to make it more intuitive for an upcoming release. We will also be adding some parameters to control whether it should take a photo, video or either and whether it should allow export and possibly return immediately on capture.
