Power Clean Form Check

Hello crossfit.

Currently I'm running the starting strength program, but will soon have to alter my program, as I prop bet a fresh police academy graduate to a mile run race. Did I mention I was a fatty? So I'll definitely be looking into adding in some crossfit workouts into my current program.

Back on topic, I'm having a few issues with the power clean, and would appreciate any feedback. This was about a month ago, but my work sets are pretty much still the same now, for a couple of reasons.
1-I had to reset them
2-poor sleep/diet for a couple of weeks
3-golfer's elbow

As far as I can tell, it doesn't look horrible. I think setup is a tad too far out in front, and I'm not getting my shoulders in front of the bar. I think I need to set my butt higher and have a more horizontal back angle at setup. It also looks like arm bend is early. I'm pretty sure I learned the transition phase poorly and need to revisit that. Arm bends too early (instead of shrugging with straight arms), knees don't extend, hips don't extend, and I'm jumping and pulling back because of everything else that's happened before it.

So, what did I miss and where to start?
