Video capture using JDE 4.7 beta

Hi friends, 

I am new to this forum and so to BlackBerry development. I would like to know..

is there any way to capture video through my application? I am using Bold as a test phone and 4.7 beta JDE.

This link http://na.blackberry.com/eng/developers/devbetasoftware/devbeta.jsp#tab_tab_jde  does mention about invoking video recorder application Does that means I have to invoke native application to capture video, or I can capture inside my application. If yes, Than when I try to create 


RecordControl rc = (RecordControl) player.getControl("RecordControl");


rc return null value.

The BlackBerry API set does not currently support programmatic access to record video.  Still images can be captured, but not video.  The built in Video Record can be used for this.
