I would say it's a Hap... but other than that, I can't find any pics that line up well.

Do female venustus have the same color pattern the male does?

A "Hap" but not a Malawi Hap "Hap". Might be an old large male Astatotilapia of some species, probably not showing full color.

Agreed, some type of old Victoria Hap, best before date since passed.

You may need him colored up to ID and sounds like members think he is too old to color up. :(

But to me the pic looks like a completely different fish than the fish in the video. Even ignoring the color and the finnage.

That fish above is not even close to the same, other than being a cichlid.

Look on this page, it's related to the fish in this group but may or may not be one of these listed.

Also since the experts think it is a Victorian (and some experts did respond) why not post your video in the Victorian forum and see if one of the members that hang out there have an idea.
