Your swing looks nice for someone who has only been playing a few weeks.  Obviously there are improvements to be made, but it's a good starting point.

Check out "Filming Your Golf Swing": https://thesandtrap.com/b/playing_tips/filming_your_swing

It'll be nice to have both a down the line (from down the line instead of "generally back") and a caddie view.   I thought getting the angle right on DTL would be a pain, but I eventually got better at it.  Caddie view would be nice to be able to check your setup, such as the angle of your left foot.  That was a simple change made for me many years ago that, once I got in the habit of doing it, made a lot of shots better and easier.  I can't tell from here if you're doing that or not.

As to your swing, it looks to my relatively untrained eye that you don't have a centered pivot.  Check out this thread:

My first impression is that your swing looks like it's all arms/upper body, doesn't appear you are getting your legs involved much at all. A common occurrence for a beginning golfer; you might consider seeking the help of your local pro, i.e. lessons.

Thank you for the advice. I did have one lesson where we played 9 holes. Didn’t really go over fundamentals much. Just basically stance, grip, club selection, putting.

Definitely need better video: https://thesandtrap.com/b/playing_tips/filming_your_swing

Skip down to the actual "filming your swing" section. Good angles are extremely important to give us accurate information with which to make suggestions.

Ok. I am playing this weekend, so I will be sure to get some better videos. Thank you.
