Not bad at all.

Your pull gets a bit better as the weight increases because you stay over the bar better. On the lighter ones, you start opening your hips a bit too early.

Try to stay flat footed a bit longer in the pull (aim to feel pressure on your heels until you start the final explosion at about upper thigh), and reconnect your feet flat on the floor - right now you toes stay in contact as you pull down.

Get more aggressive pulling under the bar as well (moving your feet as described above will help this) - pull the elbows up and out hard and squat down fast - think of locking the bar out overhead at the same time your feet hit the ground.
