I'm not going to be harsh with you, because you clearly have a sense of humor judging from the video description, though I agree that it's not really fair to the real muay thai fighters to call yourself a "Muay thai fighter" after two weeks of training.
Your posture is problematic because it's going to get your legs smashed into little tiny pieces against someone who has good leg kicks. While most beginning fighters don't, you should be aware that it's something you should fix, because it will increase your mobility and your technical skill alot.
Don't lock your front leg. It feels like it gives you balance, it really just makes you stiff and gets that leg knocked around until you can't stand up anymore.
Stand over your feet, not leaned back. This is a by-product of you putting that leg forward and locking it out. Your feet should be underneath your shoulders.
Shrug your shoulders forward. It's a mistake alot of guys make, and it's one of the things that, while I'm not a standup guy, has greatly improved my standup and has taken my boxing up a notch.
Bring them back to your face, and keep them up when you kick. It's a common mistake, but it gets alot of guys knocked out.
Throw your punches off of the hip. You throw those big hooks as arm punches, and even your straight shots seem to come from the arms, not the hips.
This make take some time for you to develop some balance and to get a little light on your feet, which will come with time, but throw the kicks off of your hips too. That really needs to happen if you expect to do damage.
Hope that was helpful.
