Looks good. If you need a reference point, Vivobarefoot has some videos on how to run barefoot. It looks like you have a nice fore foot strike and your heel briefly touches the ground.

I'm glad you said that. Thank you so much for looking at my video.

From what I could tell from the video it looks pretty good. A side profile of your running form would help. However, I don't know that I'd see anything worth mentioning. It looks like you are landing under your general center of mass, your back is nice and straight, your foot strike is soft and easy, and your knees are slightly bent. Those are the things I normally look for in good form and you demostrated all four.

Arch support?... We don't need no stinking arch support!
