Yes, your arms did look looser in the latest video.

I would definitely do some Tall or Dip Snatches before you Snatch and Tall or Dip Cleans before you Clean.

What are your thoughts about including tall snatch/clean in my warm-up?
In general get your shoulders slightly over the bar more at the start then think about chest up, elbows out and bar close. You're a bit behind the bar to start and this is causing you to bounce the bar off your thighs and loop it round. Maybe try some muscle snatch to straighten up the bar path. Do lots of sets of 3s and 5s with moderate weight just focused on smooth, fast movements and good positioning. Focus on classics above all else.
