Turn on data journaling, assuming you have the database and the video
files on different mount points.

No. Should we?

I should mention here that we do not only write datas into the database,
but perhaps 99% of the data which are written to the disk are video
data. The database mainly contains configuration informations, logs, and
references to the video files stored directly on the filesystem (ext3).
