What position were your feet in during conventional deadlift? Straight ahead or pointed out? you may have ankle mobility issues if you're feeling tightness in your shins. Do you have any tightness/pain when squatting?

You need to get your shoulders further over the bar, think of pulling in a straight line (up). If you watch the video from the side, your are pulling the bar up and back like this: / instead of this: | (look at your arms at 0:09)

Also, you don't need to exaggerate the lockout, it looks like you're leaning back a little too far at lockout.
