I agree that he needs more energy. To that affect, I would not be sitting the trot just now. And let go of his head a bit more, you are lowering his head by lowering your hands and he gets behind the bit and just crashing onto his front legs.
Get him to just put his head where he wants for a bit, but insist on him responding to your leg more; forward and sideways. Get a crop and carry it to encourage him to work harder. I can see that you are working too hard with your lower leg and it is making your heels come up and you get too "grippy". Stiffles forward umph.
