What happens:
Trying to shoot video fails. Clicking on round "Record" button fails

What should happen:
Either: Save files directly to ~/, or re-create ~/Videos, or store files in Camera App's "Data folder", or give me some sort of error message and fail gently.

Steps to reproduce:
(Always)
1. Delete ~/Videos
2. Shoot video

Logged error when taking photo:
QMediaRecorder error: "Could not open file for video recording"
