Jupiter is a blown-out, white, disk

Not using a Barlow
I was using the planetary mode in EOS to write video, about 400 frames. I tried iso settings from 200 to 1600. Even just looking at it in EOS it was just a white ball with none of the detail I could see using an eyepiece. Focus was good. No amount of histogram stretching was helping.
Do I need a filter to knock the brightness down? I can't imagine that dropping iso to 100 is going to help much. Or, is there something else I'm doing wrong?

Don't know if you can adjust exposure with 50D/video but if you can then you should do that.
Magick Lantern can do this but this is another matter and maybe you should try something else first.
