What other information are you looking for? Measure what you need, cut box to suit and you are done.

I don't know exactly what to measure and where to cut, and I was hoping maybe someone has a better solution for holding the box together than packing tape.

I think that one thing they could have done in the video, is keep the tabs on the new box side instead of cutting them off. Gluing those to the inside of the box ends would give a good, strong corner. That wouldn't work so well for the lid, but I know people use thick paper & glue for lid corner repairs so that could be an option, instead of tape.

But do you then cut along the first measurement or the second?

Material space occupied + box height is pretty much it. The top is 2 material thickness wider.
