Haha the whole thread was worth it for that video!

I didn't have the same problem when I was re-learning normal ollies. Took me about two goes. Stationary practice will get you the timing and muscle memory. Then apply the same while rolling, worked for me, here's an old video.

I think you are not lifting your back foot. It is going straight to ground and your front foot is carrying the board around frontside.

I still can't nail kickflips after 9 years back at skating. Was never great at them as a kid. I do the exact same thing as you, except with my front foot, after I flick it to the side to make the board spin, I put it on the ground. Funnily enough, also exactly like you, I can kickflip while holding a handrail. I can fucking double kickflip holding a handrail! It makes it easy for me to float my front foot because the rail holds me steady in the air. I keep trying, and denting my shins.

Scotty, good observation on the back foot not lifting up in that video. When I do ollies moving, both feet seem to be going up with the board with semi-decent height. Though I'm finding the landings tricky. Like I mentioned before, I either land with my weight too far forward or too much on the heel side edge with rolling ollies.
