I will say I think you could increase your back swing height, leverage at the bottom of swing, accuracy, and popping up at the line all by eliminating some of your upper body tilt. Most bowlers attempt to be somewhere in the 15 degrees of upper body tilt, I would estimate you are closer to 40 degrees. This limits what you can do to the ball because you are not sending your bodies momentum into the ball at release, you are sending your momentum into your toes of your slide foot. This is why your body has to "spring up", its recoiling from all the momentum going into the floor, stopping your slide, then "regurgitating" back up to your shoulders.

Adding leverage adds power, with power means you can add revs. By leaning over you kill the power of the ball because not only does your release timing shrink in length but the ball is being driven into the lane instead of onto the lane. The high impact of the shot will actually "break" the balls rotation and cause it to flatten out.

Your back swing looks much better, although I think getting rid of some of the tilt will allow your body to relax a little bit more. You want to look like you are walking to the line, as if you were walking down the sidewalk. If you do not walk down the sidewalk like you bowl then you are probably doing something you don't need to be doing.

Good luck and congrats on the already huge improvements. Keep it up and you will continue to get better and shoot bigger and better scores. There are a few other "ticks" I noticed but I think most important would be fixing the shoulders getting out over your feet. Without good balance you cannot repeat shots.
