yikes! How about the following sql:

update videometadata
set filename = insert(filename, 1, length('/old/path'), '/new/path')
where filename like '/old/path%';

the where clause is only necessary if you have more than one tree of  
video files - in other words, if your videos path is a colon- 
separated list of directories. Most people use only one root.
