You know, I certainly try to keep it straight, I feel like if I start any lower, I'll round out- but at this point when I start to pull it feels straight. Yup, it's hard to tell from the video- I'll try for another angle with the camera.

Much smoother and you are getting equal motion from your hip and knee flexion and it is also coordinated better. Make sure you keep that tight arch.
As for it feeling "heavy"... I think you just need to give it some time. It takes a while to teach your body the correct path for the weights but once you do it will increase your max lift.

I can't tell very well from that angle. Still looks like you need to get your shoulder forward of the bar more [your scapula should be in line with the bar]. And you may need to get your shins a bit closer to the bar.
Yeah, I looked again and I definitely think your shouders are too far back. You feet need to be up underneath the bar more. You hips are too far from the bar. Part of the inability to "get the glutes" to engage is because of this bad postioning. The stress is disabling rather than engaging the glutes. The other part is a lack of lodorsis in your lower back. You may need to train and activate your glutes in general through separate protocols. But the framework is there.
