Do not delete directories through the filesystem. :) You must use
Subversion commands when you want to delete or move things.

Presumably you deleted the "video" directory? Restore it using

cd path/to/app/views/admin
svn up video

Now delete it properly:

svn delete video

The directory will stay there until you

svn commit -m "Removing video directory"
