G'day @mantingfeng and welcome to linux.org :)

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.
E.g.
Code:
mv video\ \(4\).mp4 /path/to/destination/
 
You can also surround the text with quotes, may be easier than using the backslashes.

mv "video (4).mp4" ./download/whatever/
