Default Critique my Snatch and C&J

Ok. Please go pretty easy on me since I know I don't lift that good. I am looking for advice on how to improve my olympic lifting (am self "learned", actually mostly thru articles in CFJ & PM). I weight about 73-74kg and my short term goals is to snatch (consistently, I have a problem with random misses) 60kg and C&J 80kg.

For example - why do I fail the snatches on 55kg? Inflexibility? Not aggressive enough under the bar? How are my pulls? Where to focus to improve the lifts?

Also - my Jerk is horrible. I know that.

Thank you in advance for your help!
