I think it's difficult to have a video only ride report. For me, videos are more like a supplement to the ride report. Most video reports tend to be long and boring, so keep it short and sweet! Less than 10 minutes with a few different camera angles and a story being told is great. But of course it CAN be a litte bit longer, but that requires a lot of work - both filming and cutting.
An example for a long, but never boring video report is "Driven" by ADV member Mundo Bravo:

I have a different approach, as I'm not as experienced with filming and telling a story. So I didn't record any talking and have pretty much only riding scenes. Here's the video I made this summer as a bonus to the ride report:
