Hey guys just wanted you to critique my form! I will rep the good criticism, thanks guys appreciate it.
I love this sport.
I'm no expert and certainly not as good as most members of this site but for what it's worth your form looks fine to me. There's nothing that I'd say needs changing; maybe someone else might offer critique, however.

I'd try deadlifting in a non-squishy no elevated heel shoe.
You look pretty good, but it seems you are being pulled slightly forward. Also notice how on the way down you have to move the bar around your knee. Ideally, your knees should be out of the way with shins more vertical at this point. To help with that, try to get your butt back more. Getting into a flatter more stable shoe might help with this too.
Looks pretty good, bro. Strong as hell. What do you feel like you struggle with (I mean what are you worried about on your form)?
Here is my two cents and what has worked for me:
1) Close your stance a bit on conventional. The more perfectly I can align my hips, knees and ankles when I look straight down, the stronger (that's just my preference). Same thing on your hand to shoulder placement.
2) Don't waste energy fiddling around down at the bar before your lift. Get up to the bar, find your foot placement, center your mind and go.

I'm new obviously so maybe someone else can chime in but your head looked too far up/back, like you were trying to watch yourself. I know one thing that helps me is picking a spot on the floor 5-7 feet in front of me and looking there instead of looking at myself in the mirror. It's just a more natural position and it takes some of the strain away from the neck muscles.
Make those improvements and post again. Good luck with your training... you won't get hurt with the form you have, but improvements can be made.

just be careful that your arms are straight if you just rip it off the floor using an over/under grip. i blew out my bicep doing that because my arm had a slight bend in it. i've actually found i focus on form better when i don't do so. but that seems to be a matter of personal preference. i agree with the comment about closing your stance. if your arms are hanging more straight down the bar has less distance to travel. otherwise looks good. but i'm a so-so deadlifter, so take it for what it's worth!
