It's really hard to beat this one:
The classic Barry video. You don't want to emulate his form, but if you watch, you can see his wrist motion (the snap) in the first throw).
Nate has some good comments on general throwing:

The infamous distance driving video from Discraft:

Lots of far drives, but most of these throws are for distance so they're anhyzer. Focus more on everything up to the throw and not the actual throw (unless you're going for distance).
Here's a good one - this guy has a few videos like this:

Breaks down the drives of 3-4 guys in slo-mo.

This is from one of the DGR members - no analysis, just watch - great video quality and lots of slo-mo so you can see how his body is moving.

When you watch him throw, you'll see that he starts the throw with his hip pivot. That gets his arm moving from the reach back towards his torso. As he nears max pivot on the hips, he begins the torso rotation and the super fast arm pull. If you freeze it at :43 you'll see the perfect release - straight out in front with the chest squared up to the target.
It looks like Mike actually has some early releases here, but they're still going a long, long way.
You need to keep the disc as close to your chest and arm as you can until it's the last thing to unfold as your arm extends. Your elbow never locks because the disc comes out right before it does and then you finish and follow through.
Here's an exercise to try:
Grab a disc and stand about a a disc width + 1" away from a wall. The objective here is to reach back with the disc and pull throw slowly, keeping the disc within 1" of the wall and to extend your arm fully from back to front. When your arm is almost extended and the disc is tucked into your wrist, the last movement is to flick the wrist open and the disc would go straight in that direction.
Once you feel you're comfortable with doing that away from a wall. take a disc outside and repeat the exercise with some speed. What you *should* feel is that final pivot of the disc as it moves from being tucked into your wrist to swiveling out and jetting out of your grasp. You need to grip the disc firmly between your index finger and thumb and use the rest of your fingers for support and stability. The disc should pivot/rotate between the index and thumb - that's where you want it to come out when you throw.
Once you get the feeling for that snap, then you can begin to incorporate hip rotation or torso/shoulder rotation. At least then you'll know what you're trying to achieve.
The eventual goal would be to time it all correctly - your hip pivot is smooth and powerful and just as that is almost maxed, your torso rotates and pulls your arm - you then add power to the pull of your arm as fast as you can. If you time it right, you just increase the speed and power of your pull until your chest is square to the target and the disc unfolds down your arm and rips out while your arm is pointing towards your target. Then your arm continues to move past your chest slightly increasing in speed until your off arm comes up to slow you down and allow the follow through.
