Upload the video to YouTube or Google drive and post the link here. That's how most people do it here. Your video file is probably too large.

Yes I did check that and its aligned correctly and the set screw was tightened
Hmmm, your right, that probably isn't the problem. Just to be sure it does look like the yaw arm is touching the bottom of the bracket which might be causing your issue. It probably isn't, but it's worth a try. Loosen the grub screw a bit and try to center the yaw arm perfectly between the top and bottom of the mounting bracket. Its free and worth a try, sometimes a crash can shift gimbal parts up and down and even the tiniest shift can cause a world of issues.

I also did adjust that, its slightly off the bottom
