Here is my set of screen grabs related to views inside the command room and the set of monitors on the walls and on selected desktop monitors.  The video didn't provide any shots from the room where they monitored the set of cameras inside the tanks.

The video that screen grabs was taken provided by SpaceX.

UPDATE: Higher Quality images in 4K (these are 1080p) are located here:

The pictures shown previously were taken as screenshots on my 1080p laptop while watching YouTube. I downloaded the original 4K video and captured the same shots in a higher resolution (3820X2160) using the VLC snapshot app with full-resolution settings.

There is a lot of detail captured from the individual PC monitors. However, the clarity would have been better if the video had been originally recorded with stationary cameras mounted on tripods instead of using steady cam equipment or software.

Enjoy exploring the images.

Let me know if you want any additional snaps.  I did spot a chuck of debris leaving the OLM from the launch. I included a few more selected shots of the flight portion.

Elon on Starship Flight 2: "Flight 2 actually almost made it to orbit (...) The reason it didn't quite make it to orbit is we vented the liquid oxygen (...) ultimately led to a fire and explosion (...) we wanted to vent the (LOX) because we normally wouldn't have had that (LOX) if we had a payload. Ironically if it had a payload it would have reached orbit"

SpaceX has yet to submit all necessary information for the launch license modification.

Statement by the FAA provided to @NASASpaceflight :

Quote
1. What is the current status of the launch modification for the third flight of Starship?

The return to flight of the SpaceX Starship Super Heavy vehicle requires the OFT-2 launch mishap investigation to be closed and the license modification for the OFT-3 launch to be approved. The SpaceX-led mishap investigation remains open and SpaceX has not yet submitted all needed information for the license modification. Please contact SpaceX for additional information.

NASA releases footage of the second flight of Starship (IFT-2), including that taken from the WB-57 tracking plane. It does not include hot staging views. These are multiple clips edited into order.

A rabbit hole into the FOIA library. We edited everything together as they are a bunch of clips.
