Video is best focused manually. It's the same whether you're using a digital camera or the better option, a camcorder. Cheap camcorders do a better job however with autofocus if manual isn't your thing.

Use a camcorder. You'd have to be really stupid to buy a DSLR solely for video, so keep it for stills.

No, there is no settings to solve the focusing problem. The best you can do is to have good light and contrast. It is a common problem of DSLRs to get and keep focus. Like it has been said, using a camcorder will do a much better job. But if you use a DSLR for video, learn to manually focus.
