Ok so here's a new video. Saddle height has gone up slightly and ive tried to relax my arms a bit more to give a more realistic upper body position.

To me it seems like everything you are doing on the bike is more labored, it is not smooth, you are bumping up and down at the rear of the bike. Just in looking I think you may be too far back over the back tire, and your legs are reaching to pull the pedal around thru the pedal stroke. Try going forward a bit and lower the front end.

That is my $.02

That was my impression also.

The problem with rollers, especially if one is fairly new to them, is that there's a certain amount of effort needed just to stay upright. So, I'm not sure how much of what we see is related to that.

Saddle looks about right height, but agree that you could try to move it forward. And make sure it's level.
There's sometimes a buggy.
How many drivers does a buggy have?

One.

So let's just say I'm drivin' this buggy...
and if you fix your attitude you can ride along with me.
