    Your mechanics look more suited towards lowbar though. The bar needs to travel in a vertical line with respect to the middle of your foot. It looks like you are getting out over your toes which should be avoided. Also, look down towards the ground, not straight ahead. And most importantly, drive up with the hips. It's all about hip drive. Don't think of pressing with your legs, think about driving up with your hips.
    What do u mean over your toes? I know lots of people believe your knees shouldn't go over your toes but, that's untrue

    I think he meant the bar is way forward instead of over the midfoot

    One more tip: Try to go down a little more slowly and brace your muscles before you do. Maintain that tightness and control your descent. It might help to think of "pulling the bar down" versus just dropping. This will help prime your muscles to get you out of "the hole" at the bottom. It also keeps your core tight which helps everything on the lift.

    I use a wide stance. It helps with my balance and keeps the weight on my heels instead of rocking forward to the toes, as I noticed you were doing.
