Anyone have any experience that suggests that a web page containing a video that's associated with the topic for that page will provide a boost?

Do you mean hosting your own or a youtube video? I don't see any evidence to suggest you get a boost from the Youtube content, it probably helps the youtube video rank however.

IMO any content that keeps a visitor on your website for longer will assist with rankings if only by lowering bounce rates and increasing visit lengths.

Used right,a good video can also be a fairly good conversion tool too and working on increasing conversions from existing visitors is often overlooked in the clamour for more traffic.

Tested this (not extensively) and did not see a ranking increase by creating videos for a site. We tried with auto-start and without and tried hosted on another site and hosted on the displaying site etc.
