That is kind of like asking the difference between a magazine and National Geographic. In a nutshell…
One is a format in which to deliver content and the other is the type of content style.
Video can be a visual (and audio)recording of anything you desire.
A documentary is, typically,a factual, historical, actual, story about a person, place, or event. Granted, in some “documentaries” poetic license is used to varying degrees to “sell” the story.
