Last week I was starting to raise a bit the poundage of my squat but I started to have pain in the pelvis/lower back region after finishing my sessions at the gym. So I went today, put little weight to the bar and recorded a small clip. Thanks a lot. Here's the link:

Welcome to the forum.

Overall you are on the right track but it looks like your feet and knees are forward. This must change. Keep your toes at a natural angle, 15 to 30 degrees and let those knees naturally open when descending.

Check this video I did on "picking up a quarter". It shows you how your knees should naturally flower during a squat rep.

Try taking another video from a front view.

Remember, no matter what changes you make your squat form should feel natural. Just open your toes a little and let your knees naturally open a little more.
