It does not work like this here.
Here is what is expected of enquirers:
1. TRY first what you want to do! You may find that it's not that hard.
2. Formulate what was done by you that looks like an issue/not working.

Try them and tell if you face issues.

About to store the video in MySql... you better save the video somewhere else, and then just store the path in the database

In theory, you could use BLOB field to store video in db as binary data.
In practice, this is not a good idea. Relational DBs often have poor performance, specially with large binary data like video. Streaming the video from DB is also problematic.
If it has to be in a database, you should try some NoSql engine like MongoDB.

I am not telling you, not to save the video in server. I am telling you it is not so good to store the video IN the database. Instead of that, it is easier to save the videos in a normal folder in the server and store the direction / folder path in the database.
