    Yes it will. When Google re-crawls your video and see a change in description, it will affect your rankings.

    I don't think it would matter much if you changed a little bit of the description, but if you changed a lot of it I'm sure it would effect your ranking in some way, either good or bad.

    Agree on part with BENNY8877. Try not to change keywords that your video is ranked for. I think you'll be alright.
