Monte, CB, russc. Need your help.

In the video I am using a 6i. I forgot to get a FACE ON view but I will get one today. My typical miss is thin/blade. I have to REALLY try to hit a fade. I honestly do not know how I am a 10 handicap with this swing.
A few things I see is, I seem to take the club outside at takeaway, EE, hip thrust/stand up, lose spine angle therefore my right shoulder doesn't replace my left shoulder as it should. I know that the hip thrust/losing the tush line is the result of another problem.
Your Monte, CB, russc, etc let me know what you guys think. Hey, at least I LOOK like a golfer. LOL.
Hands not setting deep enough and your right shoulder is going straight down. Your shoulder turn gets almost vertical to the ground at one point. With that hand position you need to probably hit a cut unless you can really work your hips properly.
See what kind of ball flight you get when you feel your right shoulder go out and down to the ball more. It's going to feel over the top, but if you started the downswing by shifting, it won't be.
Can offer more about hip movement sand shoulder turn angle when I see face on.

Work on that right shoulder going out more and not down sow much.

Then gradually work up to bigger swings.

Can you explain "coming in too steep"? I hear this term being used often and I just want to be clear. Is it referring to the shaft plane?

So when the clubhead is traveling that steep into the ball you have to find a way to shallow it out. Standing up raises the handle and starts to pull the club out of its descent. Its a crude fix to avoid burying the club in the ground.
In my opinion, his problem starts with not getting enough depth on the BS (see monte's comment). The hand path moves more out and up rather than in and around. Hand path being out leads to rolling the forearms (clubface opens a bunch). That adds in some timing heavy components.
The other problem is that he isn't creating any secondary (body tilted away from the target). Getting the hips more forward will lower the right shoulder and shallow the path (as well as move low point forward). Also, once the hips are forward he can extend without changing his body's inclination to the ground.
