In PostgreSQL you can use:

ALTER SEQUENCE SEQ_NAME RESTART WITH 1000000;

If you got phpmyadmin you can put the value you desire and hopefully it will after that based on the largest value+1
If you edit the column iu believe I will let you know how to do it step by step if required

Try this SQL:

ALTER TABLE videos AUTO_INCREMENT = 1000000;

Open in new window
