Nowthat I see it, it's minor....

I think you attack the reps to fast and don't set your back completely before you pull.

Try pulling yourself into position. Pull enough to feel the weight without lifting it and focus on a deep arch. then reduce the weight and try a few pulls while replicating the back arch. This way you can focus on the spine without worrying about the weight.

I am also fairly long-torsoed and tight...trust me, a "proper" arch will feel awkward and exaggerated until you get in the groove.

conventional looked good. Sumo try to widen your stance some and point your toes out a little. You need to really force your knees out bringing your hips closer to the bar at the beginning of the pull. Both looked pretty good but I would have liked to seen a few heavier attempts.

What advice would you offer me to improve my deadlift form and from the videos, which do you think is more better for me between the conventional and sumo?

Thank you in advance!
You did good on your conventional deadlift, the only problem is your preparation took so long. What you should do is when you are wrapping your arms on the bar. try to kneel when your wrapping your arms. so that your back is on rest so before you start deadlifting your lower back is not tense. Your starting position should be your sheen should be touching the bar and chest out and it should look like your in a squat position.

Your sumo deadlift, your feet should be more wider. it looks like your feet position is same as your conventional deadlift. Because in sumo the one that is working is your glutes and inner thighs not much on your lower back so that is why your leegs is wide apart.

You're not completely tightening your back on either of these lifts. I'd be willing to bet that if you posted a maximal pull that your hips would fire up first and your torso would jerk forward throwing your shoulders in front of the bar and causing the lift to feel very "long" and like it involves a lot of lower back.

It can be difficult to pinpoint subtle technical mistakes from video without maximal weight, unless they are glaringly obvious. Yours aren't. Overall they are pretty good.

To get your back tight, pull yourself down to the bar pulling the slack out of it. Engage your lats, traps, rhomboids, and spinal erectors (aka your entire back) before you begin the pull.

You're build would lead me to believe that conventional Deadlift is probably the way to go if you are interested in pulling maximal weight. The weights in the video should be closer to max weight in order to better assess form. Having said that your lumbar spine is rounded a little too much. Your lumbar spine should be as close to neutral as possible. This is probably both a technical as well as core strength issue for you. Sumo you should take your stance out. Pack your neck hard pulling sumo when you break the floor. You also need to learn how to get tight too.
