Can someone tell me if the camera settings specifically aperture and iso transfer to video or do you have to set those settings some other way? If I wanted a blurred background in video can I set the aperture to a low number and achieve that?

The aperture is in the lens so yes, the lens aperture gets applied to video.
NOTE: f/2 is a bigger number because it is a fraction/ratio than f/8 is.
The ISO setting determines how much the recorded image signal gets amplified by the camera and also gets applied to video.

By the way - Video is just a series of still photos shown one after the other. Showing 25 frames per second is sufficient that humans perceive the series of still photos as normal motion.

A blurred background results from more than just setting the lens to a wide aperture.
The image sensor size, lens focal length, and the point of focus distance also affect if/how much the background can be blurred.

OK thanks you answered the question that I had if I set my camera in a such a way that I have a blurred background my video will have the same effect.
