A process is accessing the /video directory. Is /video a regular
directory in your root mounted filesystem, or is it a mount point for
a separate partition?

First, sort out the /video directory issue above. To "move" the
/videotemp directory to /video you need to alter the LVM mount command
to mount the LVM volume to the /video mountpoint.
