3rd party remote for 550D that activates video

I see several 3rd party remotes that claim 550D compatibility, but it isn't clear whether they support the mode 1/2 switching that is on the Canon remotes that is necessary to activate the video rather than still photos.

Can anyone confirm is they usually have this setting?

I want one that provides digital timer functions. I am looking for example at a Yongnuo MC-36r wireless remote.
Or one of the many wired ones that provide timer functions.

But I want it to support video, not just stills.

Thanks in advance.
