How did my message get deleted in mid-writing?

Early arm pull and incomplete extension.

Starting position is lost quickly after starting the pull - you shift forward very quickly making it into more of a deadlift start than a clean. You also shift forward during the front squat, which is not good.

Receiving stance is wide, seemingly preventing full depth.

You do this really weird thing with your hands where they're correctly outside shoulder width during the pull but then crushed between the bar and your shoulders in the front squat - shouldn't happen.
