Nope, videos do not effect the rank at all. It would be unfair to those unable to do videos if they did. As of right now, rank is based on basically fair measurements; things anyone can do. Adding videos would skew it too much in favor of the few of thousands who are able to add video.
Your rank can be boosted, however, by folks seeing the video on the reviews page
and voting or commenting on it when they may not have the first time around.
Other than that, the only benefit to the contributor for adding a video review is the gift card payment.
