Hi @mark2018. I'm not a web developer, but my understanding is that trying to store and serve videos from a database is not usually considered to be a good idea. Especially on a shared hosting platform. It would be better to store the video on a server and then use the database entry to link to its location. I found this Stack Overflow article that discusses a similar issue. Hope it helps.
