You need to concentrate on descending centrally, or even slightly to the left and do that until it looks better. .
Yeah , I noticed this , but only after I viewed the videos back.
Looking back at some old videos I can see it in there too – only not as obvious, perhaps I have “developed” this into my squat form over the last year. Time to undevelop it now!

I think that will limit your depth and is more of a geared thing. I think you should carry on breaking at the knee, but if you're going to do that you MUST concentrate on pushing up from the bottom with your heels.

What might help you here is a slight raised heel. This will allow your knee to track forward more freely and might help you to sit back more. Possibly. .
Interesting point here that you aren’t the only person to have said the point about breaking at the knee to me….
I only recently picked up a pair of adidas power perfect IIs . Will have to work on getting the weight onto the heals a lot more now.

If you can't push your knees out, then take your stance IN a little. This will allow you more room to move your knees out as you need to on the descent.
Yeah the knees buckling is pretty bad, and I can see it clearer now.
Thanks again for your help here Fazc , I hope I can be as helpful to you in some way in the future..
