    Americans do use on here. More context would tell us whether it's natural here.
    I am not a teacher.

    Okay, this conversation is happen in a restaurant. They're having their food and drinking beer.

    The full conversation of this part is:

    "I've known this guy right here since I was fourteen years old,
    and Carlos has been one of my best friends through out my entire life.
    I'm happy to have you on here, Bro.
    And thank you for that."

    I would use here if you're talking about the place. I could use on here if talking about the video being made. (BrE speaker)

    There might be some fuller context that explains why he is thinking this person is "on" something with him. Without that context, the use of "on" is wrong.

    I agree with Tdol. It looks like it means "on the video".
