you mostly play from your arm, not from your body. try to use your hip to generate speed.
do you stand on your entire feet?

It's a great start, congrats! good hips and upper body rotation and weight transfer from one leg to another.
I suggest you do it bouncing on your feet, relaxed, being more fluid; you will know you are on the right path when you can achieve the same ball speed spending less energy because you'll get better at letting your strokes flow. The shoulder should be looser: you want your the upper body rotation to throw it forward without you doing anything about it, you just let it go; same for the arm; then you snap the forearm actively.
I also recommend you place the ball in the middle, do 2 forehands and 2 backhand drills to teach you forehand to forehand, backhand to backhand, forehand to backhand and backhand to forehand recoveries and the related side steps and pivot.

you are welcome; just post your progress here; it's better to have multiple advice so you can build your own game and perspective from what all people say; this game is complicated and it's good to hear the same things expressed differently.

ok you are right...by the way

1)Is there a problem about the ball hit time?
2)Is there a problem with racket grip?
3)Is there a problem with the end of the racket? (sometimes its pass my head)
4)is there a problem in my distance? (this is last question :)))

What I see. Good forward weight transfer. Better than me!! However, not enough arm relaxation. You take the racket back too soon. This leads to a pause at the end of the backswing. This does not allow a whip action to occur. You do not rotate forward just before the arm. This means you can not relax the arm for the forward swing and this makes you not relaxed and this means the racket head swing is not maximized. ttedge.com goes into detail about the whip pattern in all strokes. It is worth joining.

What I see that's wrong is your arm is the same through the entire stroke.  You're using 0 elbow.  

Try this:  
Beginning of the stroke, start with your weight on your right foot (you're already doing this pretty well)
Elbow at more of a downward angle and less bent at the elbow.  
Swing your arm more and snap the elbow a bit as your transfer weight to the other foot.

Just to echo what has been said about the elbow:   It's not as fun-- but I would actually slow down the speed of the ball on your robot as you develop the 'feel' and elbow positioning.  I would adjust the speed to a 'warm-up' speed so that you can relax your arm more and let your elbow rest more naturally.

Check out the first few minutes of Ma long and Zhang Jike warming up and even them transitioning to stronger loop strokes.  Their elbow is still pretty close to their body.  

Positives I see is you have good 'forward' acceleration.  As you 'open-up' to a bigger forehand I would use the hips more to initiate the arm going forward.  

But overall a great start!

Yeah you should not stand on your entire feet, just your forefoot
