A couple things I noticed:
your timing seems off to me, still. It's better, but it's still looking like plant, pull, throw. it should be more like plant and pull simultaneously.
You're not pivoting on your plant foot. This is robbing you of some rotation (which will get you extra distance), and if I remember correctly can do some serious damage to your knee.
For your next videos, see if you can get the video from 90 degrees to the left of the tee-pad, so we can see your throws from the side you're facing as you throw them.
I'd still start slower than you're doing now with the initial part of the arm pull.
The timing difference between the plant and pull isn't large and I've done things the same that you do lately before I was forced to throw standing still throws. To me it seems easier to get weight forward like that and for whatever reason helps to delay the late acceleration and focus by effort with my arm for good acceleration late in the throw. Helps a lot with the wrist.
I don't think I've seen anyone x step their left leg so much closer to the right side of the tee compared to where the right leg is. That ensures that you throw a hyzer but it also makes it difficult and inefficient to twist your hips to the right powerfully which is something you need to concentrate on. Also pivoting on the right foot isn't helped by pushing with the left leg from such an odd angle. Do you tend to miss left? Now you know why if that occurs. The x step should land right beside your right foot and push hard on the left foot. Combine that with a hard twist in the hips and you'll see more D. That'll also help with not stepping through the throw. After you plant tighten all of the muscles in your right leg quite hard and combine it with a hard push off of the left leg and you should stop walking through your throw. You should pivot around the right foot which adds more spin on the disc and some speed too. Free D
You relax your arms and shoulders in your pre throw routine which is great. You lose the advantages in the reach back. At least it seems to me that you punch the disc back tightening your muscles. Ask me how I know
When you start to move the disc forwards it seems you're straining too much and bulging your muscles being tight. It shows as a non smooth uneven motion of the upper torso, shoulders and left arm from farthest back position of reach back to where the elbow starts to chop.
I'd like you to try the following exercise that helped me a lot in late power focus and acceleration which in turn made my wrist perform a lot better for greater spin on the disc. For more straightness and distance on drives.
Empty your bag by throwing from stand still keeping your muscles absolutely relaxed except gripping tight enough to not allow the disc to slip early. Don't try to power the throw hard. Think of approach power. The funny thing is that being so loose in the muscles makes your arm move faster without trying to. It's the opposite of what one might think. The distance should definitely be above approach throws. Putting more power in makes you throw shorter if it's being attempted by bulging tensioning the muscles like you try to lift something. This is a different motion so apples to oranges.
That's how basic laws of physics can fool you when it doesn't take into account human physiology which muddies up things. You shouldn't loose a lot of D compared to your x stepped throws. Once you gain the confidence that you can throw quite far with being very mellow saving considerable energy by being so mellow you can slowly start to build up muscle tension in the chop. It's easy to start to bulge your muscles from the reach back. Immediately when you notice that revert back to less attempted power. You absolutely need to stay ultra mellow in the early part of the arm pull until the chop. When the elbow starts to unbend there you can rip it as hard as you can.
I don't mean striking a pose like body builders but punching forward as quick as you can. That certainly results in the muscles tightening but not like you're attempting to lift weights for a new personal record. You mustn't think of forcing your muscles to bulge. That's too much tension and wrongly placed attention for conscious effort. You must think of quickness of motion and the muscles will do the work for you automatically. Without conscious effort.
You don't need to think of inhaling and exhaling. Let the body do what it can without micro managing. It'll only mess up your power generation and form.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.
