Hi Sreesh,

When you are uploading videos using the file upload control , your are saving those in a location by providing the path.
You need to save that path (string)

using (System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection con = new System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection("<your db connection string>"))

using (System.Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand cmd = new System.Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand())
cmd.Connection = con;
cmd.CommandText = @"INSERT INTO TABLE_XYZ(VideoPath) VALUES(@Path)";
cmd.CommandType = CommandType.Text;

cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Path", "<The saving path of file from file upload control>");
