I'm trying to build a query for mysql that I can execute from phpmyadmin that will replace the following:

Video Description

to

[media]http:domain.com/video/video.flv[/media]

the length of the domain could change and the file format could change also, so I'm not sure how to do this.  Any suggestions?

The reason I'm doing this is I just recently moved to IPB and my old embed codes will not work on it.  I was using Avea Media on SMF forums to embed my links, but no mod for this on IPB just BBCodes.

You can add the domain name in a variable like
$domname="http://www.domain.com/";
and when you fetch your record of meida file concatenate your domain and video location like:
$video=$row['medialocation'];
echo $domname.$video;//for video file full path
