G'day @mantingfeng and welcome to :)

I am moving this Thread to Command Line, where questions on scripting are better answered.

Good luck

Good morning,

I'm having a hard time trying to see part of your command.. looks like you're blocking a domain name perhaps. can copy/paste the commands along with the errors and paste them here?

It's because you have a space in your file-name. You need to escape the space by pre-pending it with a backslash character. Just like you did with the brackets around the 4.
mv video\ \(4\).mp4 /path/to/destination/
Thank you very much!I had solved this issue as your advise.
Thanks again!
