To me it looks like your knee alignment is inside your foot alignment, but it's hard to tell form that angle. This could be a major contributing factor. Knees have to be out on wide stance squats.

Honestly I would bring your stance in some and work on depth and staying upright, then move it out if needed.

Not bad. Watch your head position. In moves forward of the bar then pulls back in right before the pull. If you pull with it forward, before you get it set, you're going to RDL the deadlift.

Get your grip, lock your arms, stand up as tall as possible, sink your hips then pull.

Thanks BTB. I try to take in everything you say like a sponge.
I'll work on these for a bit and then take some new videos in a few weeks.
