There is currently a problem if your video directory is not named
/video (the default). As a quick workaround you could change the line

   updateFileName = strdup(AddDirectory(VideoDirectory, ".update"));


   updateFileName = strdup(AddDirectory("/video00", ".update"));

in recording.c (assuming your video directory is named /video00).
