JR wrote:You've got an unusual stepping direction/foot placement combination. Your running direction sets up anhyzer but you place your feet in slight hyzer placement. You were throwing annies can you throw flat and hyzer as well? If you can't yet keep the relative position of the feet in the x step but move from left rear to center or right front of the tee. Depending on how much hyzer you want.
You plant on the right side of the right foot which tilts you anhyzer. You don't really pivot on the right foot much or consistently. Please try to keep upright with your hips. Tilting right like you do fores everything anhyzer.
Your arm pull is pretty much constant speed and starts at too high a speed but never reaches tremendous speed. For for it may be good while learning but eventually you want to develop more arm speed via later harder arm acceleration. The same goes for reaching back farther and turning away farther from the target.
You're well forward with the weight shift. So much so that you look like falling down on your nose. You don't look balanced. That may change with the above posture and stepping direction suggestions.

Drop down to a Putter, preferably a beaded one for your next driving practice session. and while you are throwing concentrate on throwing flat and straight ahead. after you get used to throwing hard with a putter step up to your mids. I also suggest a Comet. That disc is the form litmus test. But don't stop with your putters until you are throwing them as far as you are throwing your drivers now. you have a lot of good components in your throw but something is off.
I was also looking at your grip. It looks like you put too much of your hand on top of the disc. try to get more of your hand underneath the disc. it allows you to relax your grip as you are moving the rest of your body. you only really need to grip really hard right at the hit.
seriously practice with your putter for a while, it pays off in a gagillion different ways.
EDIT: I watched again and you are strong arming your throws. this means that you are tensing your arm too much during the throwing motion.
I'm not that great at video critiques, but are you sure about that? To me it looks like he gets his weight forward eventually, but not until after the hit. I stopped a few of the throws where his weight was ~12" behind his plant foot, his shoulders were square with the target, the disc was about to leave his hand and was at a 15 degree nose up angle.JR wrote:You're well forward with the weight shift.

It looks to me like you aren't getting your weight forward at the hit, even though you have forward momentum at the hit. I'm pretty sure your shoulders are too far ahead of your elbow, too. The disc never enters the "power zone" because that zone is gone by the time the disc gets there. The disc has to pass right next to your right pec and should be going slow into it. After you get to that point is when you accelerate.
