"Please drink water."
I typed this and was marked wrong because of the kanji for 飲んで. I've reported it (11/14).
If you're using kanji for tabe, surely you should be using it for nomu too.
How does のみ become のんで (飲んで)? I don't really understand conjugation yet.
You should do a little research on て-form, either in Tae Kim's or even on youtube. It will help you loads and make japanese a lot easier when you get it because you use it to a loooot of stuff. Here, to make a polite request that you drink the water.
So yeah, のんで is the て-form of のむ. Verbs ending in -む change to -んで.
So far I have learned only ビデオ, but 動画 is for example used on Japanese youtube, so I think that they use both equally.
In my experience, bideo is used when there is a physical medium like VHS or DVD
