Angry [Q] Front Facing Camcorder / Recording [solved/I'm dumb/delete]

I just got my M8 today, and have been playing around with it for a bit. One thing is bugging me though. I can't figure out how to record video using the front facing camera. Ever time I try camcorder / video, it switches to the rear camera.

I'm used to running CM on a galaxy s4, and maybe that was just a CM feature, but maybe I'm missing something? Is there a way to record video with the front camera?

::edit:: left so you can laugh at me.. after going over and over, I finally noticed a camcorder icon next to the snap icon when in "Selfie Mode"

feel free to post your lolz ;p

Not that dumb a question. And no need to delete the thread IMO.

I don't like how the video cam function can't be accessed with a single tap like on past versions of Sense. And the fact its different on the front cam is counter-intuitive.
