First store the path to a string then use this to save the file and insert the same to database
string _fpath=Server.MapPath(".") + FileUpload1.FileName;

//Here @video should be the parameter name in your query/ stored procedure
cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@video",_fpath );

Ideally you could have created another folder for keeping your videos instead of directly keeping them in root path.
