This gets to the heart of what's different. Both kinds of video are a kind of discourse. But commentary or story-telling is very different from conversational discourse. Conversation generally involves two people or more and is indicated by information exchange in a topical manner. But in much smaller chunks than commentary (which also implies some sort of audience participant). Plus, one of the great things about vlogging is that it can be mixed or multimodal in terms of combining textual elements with video.
