It's hard to tell from the angle, I usually go with the 90 degree rule for poles - Elbow bent at 90 deg holding the pole with it touching the ground.
Being a visual type of guy, I made a couple drawings. First, your stance. Stick figure on left is how it appears you are skiing. Stick figure on right is more where your neutral stance should be. Keep in mind, neutral stance doesn't mean that's where you'll be at all times while skiing.
The other thing I noticed when watching your video closer, you are struggling with pole plants. The plant is inconsistent. Sometimes it's there, sometimes its not. The bigger issue is that when you do perform a pole plant, it is with the wrong pole. You are planting the uphill pole, when you should be planting the downhill pole. The general way to remember that is that you are going to plant your pole at the end of your old turn/ at the start of the new turn. Then you plant your downhill pole, and start your turn around that pole. In the drawing below, the dots represent pole plants. Red are where yours are, green is where they should be.
