How do I remotely record a video on a T6i?

I just purchased a Canon rebel T6i specifically for the capability to begin recording a video with a remote control. I have a remote control, in fact I have two of them. One that is wireless and one that plugs in. I have used both and the one that is wireless doesn't work at all so I think it is defective. The one that I plugged in will take pictures with the timer while I'm in video mode but it will not start recording. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I have also tried operating it with my smart phone with the Camera Connect app and it still won't record video.

Note that the IR sensor is in the front of the camera.

Re: How do I remotely record a video on a T6i?

I had the wrong type of remote.  It did not have two options, one to take a photo and one to record.  It only had the option to take a photo. I bought the canon remote so I should be good now.
