It would lead me to guess you might be getting them nose up at the rip - probably a loose wrist. I don't know what you're throwing here, but I'd recommend throwing some less overstable stuff and add some hyzer and see what that does for your flight. If you have a worn version of whatever you're throwing, that would work, too.
At the distances you mentioned, I don't believe that you'd be getting such lift.
Also, since it's really hard to see the discs, see if you can't aim right down the line that's in front of you in the video. That'll help with your accuracy and give you a gauge on if your distance is something you can use on the course. I only saw one disc after the rip and that was the blue one (3rd shot I think).
I'd also agree with the previous comment that you appear to be pulling from the reach back. Try and delay that pull until the disc is coming away from your chest out of the right pec area.
Seems like you have good flexibility for the follow through. That'll help if you can delay the pull and will increase your finish power.
Also looks like you're getting some wrist extension.
Do you get any tendon bounce when the disc comes into/out of your chest? The throw looks like a straight pull through. Just curious.

By better, I mean you might get more straight flight and less meat hook at the end of the flight. If you can stand to break a star wraith in, they're pretty good or a champ wraith (in the mid 160's).
Not saying you can't throw those discs, but you might get more consistently better results with some less overstable or less fast drivers.
As for wanting to really sling it out there, I guarantee you will be amazed at how far you can throw it by being much slower up until the last second. What you should find by slowly down up to the right pec area is that you'll be more in control and you'll leave yourself a smaller cone of rip area so you should hit closer to your lines more often.
So... to recap. More accuracy with the same or more distance. What could be better?

main thing: when we talk tight to the body, we mean tight towards the end of the pull (coming into the right pec and through the armpit) and exploding out.
your reach back is too tight to begin with.
so your just getting tight too early and forcing to throw away from your body (to the side of your body) and not hitting the power zone it seems like your releasing before or at the very beginning of the power zone.
reach back about a 1/2 a foot more away from your body, and while your pulling in, tuck that disc into your armpit and than kill it. see your disc at full reach back? your trying to pull it straight in parallel to your shoulders.
find a reach back that is at a relative distance away from your body (but not much) and tuck it into your armpit.
