If you know how the html for a "flash video" should look like, you can 
easily write a macro for that.

I can't suggest for "other reasons". :)

If you are a python fan, maybe hacking moin is the way to go. :)

I rather know the tools in the other direction (and not even those too 
well as I have never tried them).

You will have to convert the markup. If you find some converter or 
script doing the most often used things, it will be usually enough to 
easily fix the rest manually.

Some stuff might need some more thought (like mechanisms moin has, but 
mediawiki has not).

I think the conversion tools for direction ->mediawiki are known better 
by the mediawiki guys.
