Grainy video is grainy. I can't really tell, but it looks like your picking hand might be pretty loaded with tension. Or you just have prominent veins (I do, and I used to get confused as to whether I was tense or not just looking).

Try recording on a clean tone with a metronome in the background so I can get a better sense of if you're playing in time or not.

A metronome is a device which provides clicks at a given tempo to help you to keep time.

Like I said, I can't really tell from the video if I see tense muscles. I'll take you at your word that you're not tense. Record another video with a clean tone instead of a distorted tone and it'll be easier to tell if you're playing in time or not.

Turn your amp up, you can't hear what you are playing.
