He told me to give initial website analysis report but the problem is that I have never done SEO for video based website. So, I need your help. I want to know that, is the process of SEO different for video based website? What are those things which I can include in my initial analysis report?

huprassain, it depends.. in my experience, it's easier to rank a YouTube video than it is to rank a page with self-hosted video content.
But it's not impossible I guess. Just do what other have suggested here, plus you could use a special schema for video in the HTML, to point out to Google that you have videos on that website.
You need to change the code for that, though. There is more written about it in second part of this post.
