Remote controls and video recording

I wish to know if a remote control can start my K-3 recording video. Thanks in advance :-)

I use the Pentax Remote Control WP (O-RC1). Simple and easy to use.:

I wrote and shared some simple instructions on how to use the O-RC1 with a K-3 at
Hope that the comment may help.

Yes you can use a remote to record video. I use it all the time.
You need to be in video mode to access the options specific for video shooting. Just change the drive mode to remote when you're in video mode and you should be good to go
