Looking at the mechanics, you are not a southpaw,

My right hand is injured, so I switched stances due to that.

Good for you, for taking up a new sport. Are you in a gym yet? From the looks of it...I'm guessing you're just starting out. Definitely start slow, work on the basics of footwork, stance and hand position. Build it up from there.
I can't pick on just a few tips, because there's a lot to learn when it comes to boxing, and perhaps the best way to start is the realization that it will take a lot of patience to learn and build on.
Best of luck, and welcome.

If you're injured get that sorted first. Don't try and learn something new if you're ****ed up.

You should keep your elbows closer to your body. When you hit straights always keep your elbows close to your body. Also you drop your hands when you punch, so try to return the hand always to the same position after punch.

Body punching: Bend more your legs, your backfoot should be at 90° angle when you throw bodypunches. So try to bend more to your legs.

Theres no reason to punch anything, you are a novice. Learn to shadow box while injuries to the hand, there are many ways to do this. 2 that come to mind learn foot movement while holding with both hands under your chin a 5 kilo disc;. Or shadow box with eyes shut to feel movement whether your balance feels correct.

be careful bringing your hands back. You have a tendency to let your right hand drop too low to adequately defend against an opponent's counter punch.

hang your heavy bag somewhere that will give you about a ten foot radius to move around in.

use a timer.
