Your swing looks a bit tentative like you are tense or trying to guide the ball down the lane. Everything is very close and compact. If you look at the arm swings of your fellow countrymen, Mika and Osku, you will notice how high their back swings are compared to yours.

Here is a drill you can try. Put your hand in the ball, take your stance, put your left foot in front of your right foot and your right foot behind you to give you room to swing the ball. Then hold the weight of the ball in your left hand as described here:

Then push the ball forward until your right elbow meets the front of your chest, then pour the weight of the ball into your right hand and let the ball drop into the swing, and let the ball swing your arm back and fourth, then catch the ball in your left hand without letting it go, dry your hand and repeat. Then step on the lane and use this swing in your approach and see if it helps.
