I wouldn't recommend storing any kind of files within a database, certainly video files. You have to store them as BLOBs (Binary Large OBjects), which are huge - it is an unnecessary overhead.

Why not upload the files to a directory on the server, and store the file/folder name in the database.

pete_bisby is absolutely right, storing large files, in database is not recommended at all, if you have problems in using you server filesytem, store your files in Amazon S3 (Simple Storage Service), if easy, efficient and fast!
