    Work smaller areas and slower arm movement to let the polisher do the work. You are consistently lifting the handle end of the polisher forcing the front down into the paint. I know you think you are keeping it flat, we all do. Flat front to back and also side to side. X and Y axis.

    I have a buddy that helps me sometimes and its a struggle to get him to slow down his arms. He thinks he is adding to the polisher's movement. He never seems to work the polish evenly because of all the movement.

    From the VDO I am clearly see that you put a little too much pressure and the machine showing some stall as well. Adjust the pressure let it spin.

    The thing I noticed is that your working section is huge, 1/2 of the hood.

The longer you work it, the more the problems increase and internal temperature of the pad goes through the roof.
