I picked up the Mavic 2 pro and everything is overexposed.  I found the setting to highlight overexposed objects and it agrees.
I usually just go with auto, but have started to play with tweaks and am not making any progress.
The video just looks bad.
Here is a link to a video highlighting the problem:

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

You have accidentally adjusted the exposure compensation to over-expose.
Find the camera data line on screen and you should see EV with a number below it.
If that number is something like +2.0 or +3.0, dial that back to EV 0 and things will be OK again.

Why?
I've already diagnosed the (common) issue and given simple advice to fix it.
There's absolutely no reason to reinstall anything.

And why do you keep saying the said application, the said drone etc.
There's no need to include the word said all the time like that.
It's just weird.

The EV value is at 0.
That does not appear to be the issue.

I am using the DJI Smart Controller.
So no phone.
Let me know if you need to know anything else.

I have created another video with better quality.
Hopefully this better demonstrates the issue:

OK ... your initial post suggested that everything is overexposed, but that vid shows you are concerned about just some elements being overexposed.

The camera metering is setting so that the average of the whole scene is properly exposed, but you can always have some elements that are much lighter and brighter than the average and that's quite normal and something to be careful of.
There's no way to have darker or shadow areas equally well exposed as bright white surfaces in sunlight because the contrast is too big.
But shooting in overcast weather solves the problem.
White subjects in a darker background are a real issue with a bright sun.

I find that the overall exposure of my drone's camera tends to slightly overexpose and setting the exposure compensation to -0.3 gives a better result in most situations.

Here is a video I took last week.  They all turned out this way.
This was auto settings.

Maybe not
Do a little testing with a scene with uniform good lighting.
Try dialing a little negative exposure compensation.

Do you recommend by setting EV to -3?

Never to EV-3.0
Possibly to EV-0.3

But only if it helps.
Do a little testing to see what works for you
