Does anyone have a guide/video on how to do mysql encryption, either at the table level or the full database?

As far as I know there's no available technique to encrypt a full table or database.  See http://thinkdiff.net/mysql/encrypt-mysql-data-using-aes-techniques/ for a good technique on how to handle it on a per column basis.

Oh, and may I suggest next time you post a question, you choose a more descriptive title? =)

Okay, i will do that.  I do know in MS SQL, encrypting is easy, but seems it is not really possible to easily to in mysql?

No it's not.  There are disadvantages of being free :-)
