please tell us the settings you used.
you are filming in low light, stabilization on.
- the youtube is 60fps... was the auto-low light on?
- the darker parts of the images are affected by noise, that appears as blur.
- also the fast action will "blur" moving objects if the shutter speed is left at auto (meaning max 1/60 in this case....)
in low light, and stabilisation on (of course a must) try these settings, not all at once, combine them:
ISO MIN 100
ISO MAX 800
White balance Native
you can push the things further:
Shutter speed 1/240 - to have crisp frame images
ISO min-ISO max = 800
@danielr15 can add here...

You pretty much nailed what I would have suggested.
I personally don't like having to color grade native White balance, so I usually just set it manually.
For low light like in this shot, I would have set MIN & MAX ISO to 400 and then used lumetri curves to bring up the highlights/whites if needed. 800 might work, but I'd rather side with too dark than too bright and noisy. Although it sounds counter intuitive, an ev of -0.5 and an auto shutter (negative EV to stop the shutter from going too slow) might also have worked.

thank you @danielr15!
indeed ISO 800 is sometimes too noisy.
and WB native I use when street lights, otherwise I have a greenish everything.
yes, for this case it is better WB manually.
...this is why I "called" you, this part with EV -.5 and ISO400
@viggowiberg please tell us how is going on.
and ...try different settings, make sort experiments before the "main" filming.
